WILLCOX, Ariz. -- An overnight fire at a high school in eastern Arizona forced the administration to cancel classes Wednesday.

Video posted on YouTube captured the huge flames at Willcox High School east of Tucson.

The fire reportedly broke out in a building that houses a row of classrooms and offices on campus.

There were no reports of any injuries.

The cause of the fire has not been determined.

According to the Arizona Range News, the elementary and middle schools were also closed to allow the district to figure out how to deal with rearranging classes.

Classes for all the schools reportedly are canceled through Monday.
