Guam - A fire broke out in a classroom at George Washington High School in Mangilao. Firefighters from Barrigada and Yona were activated just before four this morning and brought it under control several minutes later. GW High Assistant Principal Sophie Duenas says they had to displace students in five classrooms today while Department of Education maintenance workers clean the rooms.

While the cost of damages is still being estimated, she adds that there was also minimal damage to several school supplies. "It looks like the display board was set on fire and it's made of wood material, the display board is made for student organizations to display the activities that they do," said Duenas.

Duenas is hoping that the classrooms will be reopened in the next two days. The cause of the fire meanwhile remains under investigation.
