A fire broke out early Wednesday morning in the cafeteria building at South Albany High School, causing more than $1-million in damage.     

The school district says no injuries were reported. Classes at South Albany High have been canceled until next week.

As many as seventy fire fighters from the region helped battle the blaze.

A number of student groups, including band, choir, dance and cheerleading, lost equipment that was stored in the building.

Governor Kate Brown stopped by the scene on her lunch break Wednesday to offer her support.

The Albany Visitors Association posted a list of ways to donate to the school on its website.
