Officials are looking for the cause of a small fire that started in the roof of a classroom building at the Milton Hershey School this afternoon.

The minor fire was contained to the roof of Senior South Hall.

Students who were in the building were evacuated to nearby Founders Hall after a contractor working on the roof noticed smoke, officials said.

The fire was quickly extinguished and no one was injured.

There is minimal water damage to a few classrooms, but students will be allowed to return to the building Friday.
