Authorities battled a fire at North Myrtle Beach High School Tuesday evening.

At least a dozen emergency vehicles were on scene dealing with a fire in the roof components above the gym, according to a tweet from Horry County Fire Rescue.

Authorities remained at the school after the blaze was extinguished doing an "extensive overhaul operation," according to the tweet. No injuries have been reported, according to HCFR.

HCFR initially responded to the fire around 7:30 p.m., and North Myrtle Beach Fire assisted.

Our Grand Strand news alliance partner, WPDE, spoke with Lisa Bourcier, and she told the media outlet Tuesday night that she believed class would continue as scheduled on Wednesday.
