HOVEN, S.D. (AP) - Hoven firefighter Rick Schaefer says officials have no reason to suspect foul play in a fire that destroyed the town’s junior and senior high school.

Schaefer tells the American News that the cause of the Sunday blaze isn’t known. The state fire marshal’s office will be investigating.

Schaefer estimates that more than 100 people helped fight the fire. He says one Hoven firefighter was flown to an Aberdeen hospital with unspecified injuries. Firefighters remained on the scene Monday to deal with hot spots.

KELO-TV reports that a donation fund has been set up in the wake of the fire, at P.O. Box 404 in Hoven. The zip code is 57450.

About 400 people live in Hoven, in northern South Dakota.
