MOUNT CALVARY, Wis. (WFRV)- Officials responded Saturday to reports of a fire at St. Lawrence Seminary. Arriving on scene just before 6 a.m., officials tell Local 5 that it was the music department's building that caught fire.

More than 40 agencies responded to the 5-alarm blaze. Officials say their biggest challenge was pumping water up to the school, which sits high on a hilltop.

Faculty and students were saddened to hear about the building's total loss. But officials say school will continue on Monday.

No injuries were reported.
