The Wicomico Middle School will be closed today and tomorrow following a power outage yesterday morning. 

Superintendent John Fredericksen issued a statement that the facility would not be open again until Monday.

Parents were able to pick up the students yesterday after a second power failure as fire crew arrived for a call about an electrical blaze fire.

WBOC reports that Salisbury Fire Chief Richard Hoppes said that fire crews from Salisbury, Parsonsburg and Delmar responded to the scene where the blaze is believed to have started in a mechanical room.

He said no one was injured in the incident.
