A small fire in an electrical closet has temporarily closed the New Kensington-Arnold School District's administration building in New Kensington.

Superintendent John Pallone said the New Kensington Fire Department responded to the fire at 6:15 a.m. today. He said a maintenance staff member extinguished the fire.

“Thankfully, no one was injured and there was no major property damage,” Pallone said.

The fire knocked out power to the building located near the football stadium at the Valley High School campus along Stevenson Boulevard. Pallone said the building would be closed until power can be restored.

The rest of the district's facilities remained open and classes proceeded as normal. The administrative office building is separate from the district's classroom facilities.
