A fire broke out in a Hampton High School classroom early Friday morning.
According to a district spokesman, a small fire broke out in one of the science rooms, activating the fire alarm and sprinkler system.
First responders were called to the building, located at 2929 McCully Road, just before 5 a.m.
Channel 11′s Lonni Rivera is at the scene. She noticed fans outside the school, and it appears as though the building is being ventilated.
The sprinkler system was only activated in the area where the fire occurred and there was no extensive damage to any other classrooms, according to the district.
Students had the day off due to a scheduled professional development day for teachers and staff. That is being relocated to Hampton Middle School.
The district plans to clean up and prepare for students to return on Monday.
