Fire crews responded to a local high school last night on report of some heavy smoke at Central High School.

The incident didn’t cause any serious damage and school will be in session Monday.

Fire crews say an overloaded power strip is likely to blame for the fire.

Just after 8 p.m. Sunday Grand Junction and Clifton Fire Departments responded to Central High School to a report of fire in a science classroom on the second floor.

Once inside they found a burned out power strip.

There was no major damage to the building.
