The central offices and administration building in the New Kensington Arnold School District are closed this morning after an electrical fire.

The New Kensington fire department responded to a small electrical fire at 6:15 a.m., which was contained in an electrical closet, according to a press release from superintendent John E. Pallone.

No one was injured, and in-house maintenance staff quickly put out the flames, Mr. Pallone said.

West Penn Power is working to restore power and the complex will open when service returns.

All other district facilities are open.
