A minor electrical malfunction caused the evacuation of Greencastle Middle School Monday morning.
At 8:48 a.m., the Greencastle Fire Department was dispatched to the middle school at 400 S. Percy Julian Dr. for a structure fire.
Upon the fire department's arrival, the school had been evacuated, but the fire was already out. The problem had originated in a light ballast in the gymnasium.
After a brief investigation, the fire department cleared the scene at 9:09 a.m., releasing staff and students to re-enter the school.
