TWIN FALLS -- A fire has damaged two classrooms at a school in Twin Falls, but all the children are safe.

A spokeswoman for the Twin Falls School District tells us the fire started at about 10 a.m. in a modular building at Perrine Elementary School.

The building contains four classrooms. Two have been damaged.

Children who were in class at the time were evacuated to the playground. They are all safe and accounted for.

The Twin Falls Fire Department quickly got the fire under control.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.

“We are proud of our teachers and administrators who responded quickly. It was evident that our fire evacuation drills pay off. We also want to thank the Twin Falls Fire Department and Twin Falls Police Department for their quick and effective response. We are continuing to cooperate in their investigation,” said Superintendent Wiley Dobbs.

Students were allowed to return to the classes in the main building. School officials are working to determine placement for students who use the modular classrooms.

We are told that two of the classes will be allowed to return to their classrooms Friday, while the other two classes will be relocated until the repairs are complete.

Summit Restoration is on scene to begin the process of repairing the damages.
