HOVEN, SD -

Fire crews fought a large overnight fire at Hoven High School, Sunday. According to authorities, the fire started around 1:00 a.m. and was still burning into the early morning hours.

The superintendent of the Hoven School District, Peggy Petersen, tells KELOLAND News the high school is combined with the junior high. There are about 55 students who attend the school. She says a fire in a small community will leave a lasting impact.

“I can't believe it. It's kind of devastating to the whole community. Everything in these little communities are centered on the school, I don't even know what to say,” Petersen said.

Petersen says several fire crews have been working throughout the night to put out the blaze.

“We have every fire truck from miles around, it looks like. I think we have firemen from Mobridge, Selby, Java, and Hoven, there are other places that have come. I know that Ipswich got the call,” Petersen said.

As of 11 a.m. the fire is still smoldering. The fire marshal is trying to to get into the building to begin the investigation, but conditions are still too unsafe for any work to be done.

Crews are still on the scene Sunday morning. The fire is still under investigation. A KELOLAND News crew is on the way to Hoven and will bring updates later today on KELOLAND News and KELOLAND.com.
