ANCHORAGE — A fire destroyed a two-story shop at the school in Galena.

The fire occurred late Saturday and for a brief time threatened classrooms 50 feet away.

Galena City manager Tom Corrigan says the fire started in the shop, where automotive, electrical, metal-working and carpentry classes are taught.

Corrigan says it was the largest fire in village history.
