BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Westdale Middle School was forced to dismiss early Monday, Sept. 20, and will remain closed Tuesday, Sept. 21, due to a power outage.

The East Baton Rouge Parish School System reported a transformer on the school’s campus blew around 9 a.m. and some sparks caused a small fire in a closet in the gym.

The Baton Rouge Fire Department responded to the incident and prevented the flames from spreading.

The school remains without power.
