An explosion at Pacific Cascade Freshman Campus triggered fire alarms, dispatched emergency crews and damaged a toilet in a second-story bathroom at the school.

The explosion took place in the 2100 wing of the building, 24635 S.E. Issaquah-Fall City Road, at about 11:15 a.m. Jan. 16, near the end of the school’s first lunch.

The incident is still under investigation by police, said Sara Niegowski, the district communications director.

The school was evacuated in accordance with the school’s emergency plans, Principal Dana Bailey wrote in an e-mail to the school’s community.

Students were outside briefly before being allowed to wait in the gym while emergency officials surveyed the campus and made sure the school was safe.

In her message to the school community, Bailey also said staff members and students displayed order and patience while following the school’s evacuation plans.
