The school caught fire early this morning. Firefighters managed to put out the blaze and no one was injured. However, the fire ripped through one wing. That's about six classrooms total.

Klein ISD officials decided to cancel classes at the school to give them time to assess the damage. They will decide later today whether to hold school tomorrow.

It is not clear yet what started the fire.
