Students are back in class at Penticton Secondary School, after a small electrical fire led to an evacuation of the school early this morning.
According to Penticton Fire Chief Wayne Williams one of the light fixtures caught fire in the commons area around 9:15 a.m.
Crews went in and extinguished the fire and made sure it had not spread beyond the area.
The school was evacuated while firefighters dealt with the incident.
As of late this morning, it was business as usual. With students and staff coming and going. Janitors were still at work cleaning up the commons area.
Parent Sabrina Welz, said she was at the school to pick up her daughter's binder, when all of a sudden the alarm went off.
"One of the office people said it's not a drill, this is the real deal, so everyone got out," she said. "It was definitely not expected."
