(AP) Authorities say a small explosion and fire in a Pennsylvania eighth-grade science classroom has injured five students.


Cumberland County spokeswoman Meg Silverstrim says two of the children have been taken by helicopter from Wilson Middle School in Carlisle to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. She says the others were driven to Carlisle Regional Medical Center.


Silverstrim says the cause of the explosion and fire is under investigation. Crews were able to extinguish the fire quickly, and the school continued with its regular day.


She had no information about the children's medical conditions.


School district officials have not returned messages seeking information about the accident.
