Halls Ferry Elementary School has canceled school Tuesday (May 10) due to an evening fire.

The St. Louis American reports, the school’s art department caught fire Monday night when a kiln overheated. Fortunately, the fire was contained in the art closet which is designed as concrete room to prevent fires from spreading; however, smoke and ashes spread through other parts of the school.
