UPPER WEST SIDE — Firefighters responded to a one-alarm fire on the top floor or an Upper West Side school Thursday afternoon.

Sixty firefighters rushed to the blaze at the De La Salle Academy on 202 West 97 Street around 4:30 p.m., FDNY said. The fire was put under control around 20 minutes later, said a fire department spokesman.

There were no reported injuries.

Fire fighters are still not sure what caused the blaze and could not comment on what damage, if any, the school sustained.

School officials declined to comment.
