School damaged by fire

RACINE, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Fire heavily damaged a middle school in Racine overnight.

Units were called about 1:30 this morning to Mitchell Middle School, where classes have been canceled for the day. An alarm alerted police. Officers found smoke in the building and called fire-fighters.

Racine Fire Chief Steve Hansen said the gymnasium was destroyed after its roof collapsed. He said crews were able to stop the flames from spreading to the elementary and high school areas.

Hansen said the sub-zero wind-chills caused nozzles and hose-lines to freeze. One fire-fighter slipped on ice, but was said to be okay.
