Eastside Fire & Rescue crews responded to a small fire at Tiger Mountain Community High School on Friday morning.

The fire started on the outside porch of a portable classroom on the Southeast Evans Street campus. Sara Niegowski, Issaquah School District spokeswoman, said the fire appeared to start in a tool bench used for storage.

Firefighters responded to the campus before 5 a.m. Friday.

The interior of the portable classroom sustained minimal smoke damage. District employees aired out the classroom.

EFR has not determined the cause, and the arson investigation continues.

The campus is the district’s alternative high school; about 80 students attend the school. The campus, like all others in the Issaquah district, is in the midst of winter break. Students return to classes Jan. 3.
