MOUNT CALVARY, Wis. (AP) -- The nearly 200 students at St. Lawrence Seminary are safe after a five-alarm fire at the boarding school.

School spokesman Philip Van Ermen says all students have been allowed to return to their dorms.

No one was injured in the fire, which happened before dawn Saturday in St. Joseph Hall. St. Joseph Hall is the oldest building on campus, and is severely damaged. The building houses offices and classrooms.

The cause of the blaze is still being investigated. No other buildings were damaged.

St. Lawrence Seminary High School is a private, Catholic boarding school for male students. It was founded in 1860 by Capuchin Franciscans.
