Fortunately, due to the fall break, there were no students or teachers at the school at the time of the fire. But maintenance work was being done at the school at the time, including work being performed in the gym.

Because of the fast response by the Shreveport Fire Department, the fire was able to be quickly controlled, resulting in isolated damage to the school.  School operations are expected to be able to resume normally on the Monday following the fall break.  Any classes or activities normally held in the main gym will be moved to the auxiliary gym until all restoration efforts are complete.
