A familiar scene at the Wilmington Friends School in Alapocas, where a second fire in recent months has broken out.
The call came in around 4:45pm Tuesday in 90-degree temperatures for reports of a fire in the roof area of the Upper School -- the same place the blaze broke out last time.
This fire was much smaller than the last three-alarm blaze that destroyed a big part of Delaware's oldest existing school in April.
That fire was declared an arson.
State Fire Marshal's investigators say the cause of Wednesday afternoon's fire was sparks from construction equipment that set off nearby flammable materials while crews were working on the roof.
No one was hurt.
