A grass fire forced the evacuation of the Warm Springs K-8 academy Tuesday afternoon, according to multiple reports.

A witness said the fire started near the end of the school day, crossed a road and made a run along the school. People were asked to evacuate at about 3:30 p.m. and leave the grounds. 

KWSO reports the fire has forced the cancellation of a Family Science Night for students and families. The station also reports that school is canceled on Wednesday.
