About 700 students were in the cafeteria around 1 p.m. Tuesday at Klein Forest High School in Klein, Texas, when someone set off a firework inside.

Harris County Fire Marshal Laurie Christensen says a couple of the students were injured by the firework while the others were hurt as they tried to run away and tripped or fell.

Officials say a student has been detained and investigators are looking for other possible suspects.
