Greensboro firefighters were called to Page High School Tuesday afternoon after officials said a student lit a trash can on fire. Dispatchers said the school resource officer called them at about 11:15 a.m. to report the fire. Officials said the fire was under control in about ten minutes and no one was hurt. An on-call Greensboro fire chief said a student started the fire in a trash can, prompting all students to exit the school in the middle of classes. Students were allowed to go back inside the school around noon. Fire investigators were at the scene.
