BROOKLYN - Officials have ruled that the fire that shut down a Marine Park middle school yesterday was an accident.

According to fire marshals, construction lighting is to blame for the roof fire at M.S. 278, which erupted just as kids were arriving to school in the morning.

Students were either picked up by their parents or taken to a nearby school for the day. No one was hurt and classes were back in session today.
