Cannon Falls High School has small fire

The spontaneous combustion of some acrylic rags in a garbage can caused a fire at Cannon Falls High School Thursday night, according to the Cannon Falls Fire Department.

Firefighters responded at 11:15 p.m. and quickly extinguished the fire, a spokesman said. They spent most of their time removing smoke and odor.

District staff were cleaning up the school Friday and weren't available for comment.
