First Published Mar 06 2014 08:45 pm • Last Updated Mar 07 2014 01:19 pm

A small fire burned briefly at Olympus Junior High in Holladay on Thursday night, but was out before fire crews arrived on the scene.

The fire started about 7 p.m. on a stage at the school and burned some curtains, according to Unified Fire Authority Battalion Chief Brian Anderton. Crews were dispatched to the scene, but sprinklers in the building extinguished the flames before they arrived.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

People at the school reported seeing smoke, Anderton said, though the fire did not produce any injuries.

Anderton said most of the damage from the blaze was caused by smoke and water. He did not have an estimate of the cost of the damages.
