Classes at Fairless Middle School resumed Friday morning after a fire Tuesday damaged their school. 

School officials canceled classes at the Stark County school Wednesday and Thursday after a fire Tuesday morning. 

Brewster Fire Department Chief Chris Colucy said a lightning strike started the fire.

"The people from the bus garage heard it called it in about 6:30. The janitor came over, saw that there was smoke coming from the building. When we first arrived, we got up on the roof noticed that the smoke was pouring out of the top of the roof, peeled it back and there was some fire contained to just the top section of the roof," said Colucy.

Luckily no one was in the building at the time.
