A smoky bathroom fire that forced the evacuation of the Ho-Ho-Kus public school was quickly doused with help from borough police.

Officers using hand-held extinguishers contained the blaze until firefighters from Ho-Ho-Kus and Waldwick arrived.

No injuries were reported.

Because of the hot weather, two ambulances were dispatched as firefighters worked to ventilate the building.

Students were allowed back in about a half-hour later.

Authorities were investigating the cause.
