OCONTO, Wis. (AP) -- A fire at Oconto High School has caused an estimated $5 million in smoke damage to the school.
Students have been out of school since Wednesday morning when a fire broke out in a boys' bathroom.
Classes are also canceled Thursday and Friday is a scheduled day off. WLUK-TV reports when classes resume Monday, they will be held at Oconto Middle School.
District officials say there are some empty rooms at the middle school, but plans to accommodate the 300 students and 42 staff members are still being developed.
The move to the middle school is expected to last three weeks.
The fire department continues to investigate whether the fire was set.
