Crews contain fire at Santa Clara High School snack shack

Firefighters contained a small fire at a snack shack at Santa Clara High School Monday afternoon, a Santa Clara Unified School District spokeswoman said.

The fire broke out around 1 p.m. at the snack shack near the football field of the campus located at 3000 Benton St., district spokeswoman Jennifer Dericco said.

Firefighters quickly responded to the scene and extinguished the blaze, Dericco said.

No injuries were reported.

Students and staff members evacuated from the campus, which is the protocol whenever there's a fire at the school, Dericco said. "We always practice drills, but we were able to put that into actual practice today," she said.

Everyone was allowed back inside at about 1:40 p.m., according to Dericco.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
