High school closed after part of building catches fire

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A high school in northeast Ohio will be closed on Monday after a section of the building caught fire over the weekend.

The Akron Fire Department says firefighters were called to Ellet High School Saturday night and found light smoke throughout the hallways. Firefighters later found the fire and extinguished it.

A spokesman for Akron Public Schools tells the Akron Beacon Journal the fire is thought to have started in the building’s maintenance office. It damaged a section of the building that houses the school’s construction program.

There were no reported injuries.

The fire caused an undetermined amount of damage. An investigation is ongoing.
