DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — A fire at a Catholic high school in Dickinson heavily damaged the building and canceled Monday's classes.

KXMB television reports (http://bit.ly/1ols5ek ) that firefighters responded to Trinity High School just after 1 a.m. after receiving a call about the fire alarms going off.

Dickinson Fire Chief Robert Sivak says the building suffered heavy smoke damage throughout the school, extensive fire damage in the office area and structural damage to the ceiling above the office area, which is the floor of the library.

It took 29 firefighters about two hours to put out the blaze.

Sivak says the fire started in the main office but the cause is under investigation.

Officials plan to have students take classes at the public schools or at the university.
