WEBSTER GROVESÂ Firefighters quickly extinguished a fire Saturday on the roof of Webster Groves High School, officials said.
The fire broke out about 1:45 p.m. The cause has not yet been determined, but Webster Groves Battalion Chief Tom Yohe said it was â€œpossibleâ€ the fire was sparked by one of the schoolâ€™s solar panels.
Departments from around the area responded to the 2nd alarm call. The fire was contained within 15 minutes, Yohe said.
Officials said there may be some water damage to the schoolâ€™s third-floor classrooms from fighting the fire. No firefighters were hurt, and any damage to the building was minor.
The schoolâ€™s seniors graduated Friday, but Yohe said because access to the roof was difficult he â€œseriously doubtedâ€ the fire could have been started by students. The school is expected to be open Monday.
