NORFOLK -- Students at Booker T. Washington High School in Norfolk got an unexpected break from class.

 

They were evacuated because of fire in a bathroom trash can, Schools spokeswoman Elizabeth Mather told WVEC.com.

Firefighters were called to the school on Park Avenue around 10:30 a.m.

"Students were evacuated while the smoke was cleared and should be back in the building shortly," she said.

No one was hurt.

The investigation continues.
