No injuries were reported in a small fire that interrupted classes at a Philadelphia public high school.
The fire department says Wednesday morning’s fire was confined to a fourth floor bathroom at Benjamin Franklin High School. It’s the second fire at the school in five months.
Executive Chief Clifford Gilliam says firefighters arrived at the downtown school around 9:10 a.m. and brought the fire under control within seven minutes.
Evacuated students posted videos on twitter and Instagram showing thick black smoke pouring from the building.
A spokesman for the School District of Philadelphia didn’t immediately respond to a message.
Benjamin Franklin High School has about 700 students in grades 9-12. A science lab fire in June forced students out but caused no injuries.
