CENTERVILLE, Iowa (AP) - A fire in a teachers lounge has forced the evacuation of a high school in south-central Iowa.

The Centerville Police Department says the fire was reported a little before 12:15 p.m. Thursday at Centerville High School. The students and staff were evacuated, and no injuries were reported.

Investigators later determined that a fire that began in an electrical outlet spread to a nearby couch in the lounge. Centerville Police Chief Mike Bogle told the Daily Iowegian that a teacher closed the lounge door, which helped contain the flames.
