Miami ISD Classes Canceled after fire in the school

Miami, TX  --  School is canceled in the Miami Independent School District on Tuesday after a fire in the school.

Roberts County Judge Vernon Cook says the firefighters put out the blaze after 7am, but remained on the scene mopping up hot spots.

The blaze started in the common area of the school near the gym concession stand.

Firefighters kept the flames to that area, but smoke and water damaged other areas of the school.

Cook believes the fire may have been electrical, but an investigation will take place to find out the exact cause.
