When crews arrived on the scene just before 7 a.m., they found smoke coming from the front of the main building. Staff told firefighters there was a small fire in one of the rooms.

Crews were able to extinguish the fire and prevent it from spreading to the rest of the building.

Staff and students were able to return to the building once the smoke cleared and air quality returned to normal, safe levels.  There were no injuries.
