Fire in restroom at high school

City fire and police investigators are trying to determine the cause of a small fire that broke out Monday morning in a stall inside a boy’s restroom at the Williamsport Area High School, 2990 W. Fourth.

The fire, which involved a toilet paper dispenser in what is known as the “D pod,” was out when firefighters arrived about 10:55 a.m. Damage was estimated at $500.

Students were safely relocated to the auditorium and exhaust fans were used to clear smoke from the building, Greg Hayes, school district spokesman, said.

All classes resumed at 1 p.m. following lunch, Hayes said.
