Bayside High School Evacuated After Suspicious Fire

Bayside High School was evacuated yesterday after a small fire from a suspicious device.

Authorities say the fire department responded to a small fire coming from an unassigned locker in a first-floor classroom.

The fire was contained to that locker, and the NYPD's Bomb Squad was called in to check out the situation.

The device reportedly had two batteries -- a 9 Volt and an AA -- wires, and some sort of relay.

Authorities believe it was some sort of homemade phone charger.

No injuries were reported.
