The cell tower at a Virginia high school caught fire recently. Apparently the fire was at the base and at the top. We assume that fire fell to the ground lighting up the cell tower compound which contains diesel fuel. 
"Firefighters got to the scene along Marshall Avenue at 11:53 a.m. and found “a massive amount of fire at the base of the tower, with wires burning along the full length of the tower,”

Chicago French International School IT Committee Calls For Safe Wired Internet

Please see this 2014 Presentation On Safe Technology of the  Lycée Français de Chicago given on June 9, 2014 by the IT committee.

IT Committee Recommendations include

 Apply easy-to-implement guidelines to minimize Wi-Fi’s contribution to EMF levels: 
• Rely on the ethernet (wired) network first for primary connectivity 
• When considering potential uses for mobile devices in the classroom, plan to:
- Disable wireless radios (e.g. “airplane mode”) by default, except for such times where connectivity is needed
- Avoid unnecessary high bandwidth uses (e.g. don’t stream the same video to 20 wireless devices, stream it once to a classroom display via wired ethernet) 
- Instruct children on proper device positioning (e.g. on the desk rather than the lap) 
 - Consider ways to help educate parents on the overall topic of EMF exposure, including from the use of mobile devices and cell phones
