Construction at The Bronxville School leads to rat infestation

Construction on The Bronxville School's heating system has led to a rat infestation in the school.

Officials say that during the construction, the rats may have found an opening and entered the wall where they took up residence.

Traps have been set and walls have been sealed up to try and prevent further infestation.

Assistant Superintendent John Kehoe said that the district is taking the problem seriously and it believes the issue is under control.

School officials say the rats pose no risk to the students.
