NICHOLASVILLE — No one was hurt in a small fire Tuesday morning at West Jessamine Middle School.
Shortly before 10 a.m., someone ignited some toilet paper and threw it above some ceiling tiles in a first-floor bathroom, Nicholasville Deputy Fire Chief Kevin Baker said.
The fire, extinguished by an administrator, damaged some ceiling tiles. Several hundred students were evacuated.
No one has been charged in the incident, but it is under investigation by the Nicholasville Arson Task Force, Baker said.
