Students at Bible Hill Junior High School were evacuated to Redcliff Middle School on Tuesday after a kitchen fire.

The Bible Hill Fire Brigade responded to the scene and say the fire was contained to the oven and quickly extinguished.

Chignecto-Central Regional Centre for Education (CCRCE) Communications Manager Jennifer Rodgers tells our newsroom that staff and students were moved safely out of the school.

She says Redcliff was welcoming and the two sides worked out a way for instruction to resume this afternoon.

Bus dismissal and afternoon pick-ups will still happen at the normal times for Bible Hill Junior High, just at the Redcliff location.
