VICKSBURG, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Thursday morning house fire, in Vicksburg, damaged a home across the street from Grove Street Non-Traditional School, but posed no danger to students.

GED students were evacuated from their building and into the main structure to avoid the smoke.

Principal Lee Dixon sent out a call to all parents to assure them everything was OK and Vicksburg-Warren County Schools Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Swinford came to confirm the safety of the students.

The fire was in the 1300 block of Jackson Street and firemen were able to contain it quickly.
