HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu firefighters extinguished a fire that broke out early Thursday from a third-floor classroom at St. Andrew’s Priory School.

Nearly 25 firefighters responded to the alarm at around 3:20 a.m. and found light smoke emanating from the classroom, which they discovered started from a chemistry cabinet. They were able to extinguish the flames in about 30 minutes and then ventilated the structure. A hazmat crew was later dispatched to assess the air quality of the scene.

No injuries were reported, HFD officials said.

A spokesman for St. Andrew's said school operations, including its summer program, are not affected.

The cause of the fire as well as damage estimates have yet to be determined.
