Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Jefferson County Public School students who live near the area where a SWAT situation and fire occurred were diverted to Meyzeek Middle School.

Tamekya Duncan heard about Wednesday's standoff from her sister who lives down the street.

Duncan said after hearing the news she was worried about her neighborhood and her daughter, who is a freshman at Male High School, "Especially when I get a call to say my daughter can't get off her bus stop and I need to come and get her from Meyzeek Middle School."

Early education bus riders who are usually dropped off in the area that was blocked off by police were taken to Dawson Orman Education Center.

Due to the standoff, Lincoln Performing Arts School canceled all of their activities planned for Wednesday night.
