SAN JOSE -- Firefighters quickly put out a fire that broke out early Thursday in the attic of a multipurpose building at Caroline Davis Intermediate School in South San Jose, according to the San Jose Fire Department.

The fire was first reported at 5:33 a.m. on the campus at Edenview Drive and Branham Lane East and was extinguished within 25 minutes, fire Capt. Reggie Williams said. The department called for two alarms as a precautionary move because the blaze involved a school.

Williams said no injuries were reported, adding that the fire was contained mostly to the attic of the affected building and that instructional areas sustained only minimal damage.

Jose L. Manzo, superintendent of the Oak Grove School District, said the fire was contained to one classroom.

"With the first day of school quickly approaching, I want Davis Middle School parents to know that students' classroom experience will not be impacted in any way as a result of the fire as the school facilities have the capacity to relocate those students whose classroom was damaged," Manzo said in a statement.

Fire investigators were summoned to the site to determine a cause, but Williams said there were no immediate signs that it was intentionally set.
