The ongoing renovation of Cooper Middle School is heating up — literally.

Fairfax County Fire and Rescue units put out “a very small, smoldering fire in a construction area” next to the school at 977 Balls Hill Road around noon today (Tuesday).

According to the fire department, the fire did not present any danger to students, who are currently on spring break anyway, and no evacuation was required.

Most units returned to service shortly after noon.

The McLean school is undergoing a major renovation project totaling approximately 179,000 square feet of space. Anticipated additions include classrooms, a new library, reconfigured administrative offices, expansions of the cafeteria and main gym, and site improvements including parking.

Construction on the project is expected to be complete in the fall of 2023, according to Fairfax County Public Schools.
