SANTA YNEZ, Calif. -

A fire broke out in a computer lab at Santa Ynez High School Wednesday morning, forcing students and faculty to evacuate.

Students in a nearby classroom smelled smoke and told their teacher.

No one was in the lab when the teacher came in to put out the flames with a fire extinguisher.

Students were already being evacuated, and the fire was extinguished when firefighters arrived on the scene.

A Santa Barbara County Fire spokesperson said the fire was caused by a power strip in the lab. No one was harmed during the incident.
