Haskell Schools in Muskogee County will be closed again Thursday, due to a fire in the district’s bus barn.

The fire Tuesday night heavily damaged the bus barn and 10 of the district’s buses inside the barn were also damaged. The district canceled classes on Wednesday because of transportation problems. They canceled classes again Thursday, so crews could get the buses ready for use again.

Authorities say the blaze was caused when a gas can ignited and the fire spread to the barn. No one was injured.
