Fire Guts Section of Primary School in Clayton

CLAYTON, Ala. (AP) - A Sunday morning fire caused extensive damage to classrooms and the cafeteria at Barbour County Primary School in Clayton.      

Clayton Fire Chief Ken Killingsworth said classes are canceled Monday. He said no decision has been made on when the school will reopen.      

The fire was first reported shortly after 9 am Sunday and was brought under control about 4 pm. Volunteer fire departments from seven surrounding communities responded to the blaze. Killingsworth said flames destroyed two classrooms and half of the cafeteria. He said most of the fire damage appears to have been confined to the roof and attic.      

Investigators with the state Fire Marshal's Office are trying to determine how it started.
