Ceiling collapses at Dallas elementary school

DALLAS (AP) - Dallas school officials say there were no reports of any injuries after a ceiling collapsed when fire broke out at an elementary school's auditorium.

The collapse happened Wednesday at Kahn Elementary School after a small electrical fire triggered the sprinkler system.

A school district spokeswoman says 54 students were on the campus but they were all in the cafeteria.

Engineers and inspectors closed off the auditorium area late Wednesday.

School officials say students should attend classes at nearby Rosemount Elementary Thursday morning.
