There were some tense moments in Ogallala on Tuesday as fire struck an elementary school.
According to Elementary Principal Jim Jeffres, a small fire broke out in a ventilation shaft and spread to the roof of Progress Elementary School.
Rescue crews were able to contain and extinguish the fire swiftly as the students and faculty were gathered outside the building.
After a brief fire fight, the students and staff were allowed to re-enter the building and classes continued as usual. Students were not released early and classes are going on as usual on Wednesday.
No one was injured in the incident and the damage to the building is minimal, according to Jeffres.
