Firefighters are still at the scene of an overnight fire at Hoven High School.

The Hoven Fire Department was called out to the school just before 1:00am Sunday morning. Hoven Firefighter Rick Schaefer says firefighters from 12 surrounding communities came to help throughout the night, along with many area farmers and ranchers equipped with sprayers.

Schaefer says the fire department drained Hoven’s water tower while trying to put out the flames; throughout the night, the crews gained access to nearby water towers and other irrigation sources to continue fighting the blaze.

Fire crews are still at the school working to put out flames that keep popping up in the rubber roofing. The State Fire Marshall is at the scene investigating the cause of the fire. Firefighters will remain on scene for the next 48 hours.
