Anacostia High School To Open As Scheduled After Roof Fire

WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — School officials say Anacostia High school will open as scheduled on Tuesday, days after the roof caught on fire.

District of Columbia Public Schools say the fire started in the afternoon on Feb. 17 and students were immediately removed from the building. No student was injured.

Two fire fighters were injured and hospitalized after reportedly falling through that roof while trying to extinguish the fire.

Authorities say the fire occurred on a section of the roof that was under construction.
