A small fire in the third floor girls' restroom at Central Kitsap High School Wednesday afternoon was intentionally set.

Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue firefighters were called to the school at 3700 NW Anderson Hill Road at about 2:30 p.m. after smoke was reported.

Students were evacuated from the building following the alarm.

School officials were alerted to the fire and used a fire extinguisher to snuff out the small blaze, according to a statement from the fire department. No one was injured.

Estimates put the damage at about $2,000.

District spokesman David Beil said about 1,200 students were temporarily evacuated.

The Kitsap County Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire. Those with information about the cause of the fire can contact the Fire Marshal’s Office at (360) 337-5777.
