The Crescent Fire Department responded to the storage building near Crescent High School just after 3 p.m.

As fire crews arrived the building was overtaken forcing firefighters to go defensive.

“The building was fully-involved when the department arrived,” Fire Chief Grady Birchfield said. “It was quickly brought under control with assistance from the Guthrie Fire Department.”

Birchfield says the structure was a total loss.

Inside was miscellaneous items, including desks and chairs.

Crescent Middle School Principal Wayne Owens said students were held at the school until buses could arrive.

It’s not certain what sparked the fire.

There were no injuries reported at the scene.
