ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A fire at an Albuquerque school is being ruled accidental.

The Fire Department says investigators have determined that a heating source caused the weekend fire at Chaparral Elementary School.

The fire occurred in new construction at the school, and the Fire Department says its crews and a sprinkler system were able to keep it from spreading from the existing portion of the school.
