DOVER, Okla. (AP) - A central Oklahoma high school has been destroyed in an overnight fire.

Officials say Dover High School caught fire early Tuesday. It took firefighters about five hours to contain the fire, which started on the west side of the building in one of the classrooms.

No injuries have been reported, and the cause of the blaze is not yet known.

Dover Schools Superintendent Shannon Grimes tells Oklahoma City television station KWTV (https://bit.ly/1RzSvgj ) that the high school students will temporarily be moved to the elementary school until a longer-term solution is reached.

Classes had previously been canceled for Tuesday for a funeral.



Dover is about 60 miles north of Oklahoma City.
