Students and staff evacuated Somerset High School last Wednesday afternoon when a SMART Board shorted out, and caused a fire in one of the building's classrooms.

District Administrator Randy Rosburg said melted plastic from the SMART Board caused a fire and damaged the classroom wall and carpet.

As of Monday, Rosburg said no damage estimates from the blaze had yet to be determined. The classroom has been cleaned, however, and is in use.
