ROY — Classes at Sand Ridge Junior High School were canceled Thursday following an electrical fire.

After arriving at the school, 2075 W. 4600 South in Roy, a janitor noticed a smell and some haze inside the school, fire officials said.

The Weber School District confirmed via Twitter that there was an electrical fire in the boiler room. Roy firefighters responded to the fire after the janitor pulled the fire alarm.

Firefighters discovered smoke, but no flames when they arrived. There were some lights out at the school.

An alert was issued informing parents to keep students at home due to the fire.
