One Baton Rouge school plans to open on time, despite catching on fire earlier this weekend.
Firefighters responded to Westdale Middle School around 11 Saturday morning. Two janitors say the fire started in a teacher workroom filled with computers, copiers and scanners.
No classrooms were damaged and no one was injured. Fire investigators believe the flames started when an electrical malfunction caused sparks to fly.
