THE BRONX - A Throgs Neck school is open and getting back to normal after suffering heavy damage from a fire nearly two weeks ago. 

Students are taking their Regents exams as planned at Monsignor Scanlan High School, despite a three-alarm fire that started in the boiler room on Jan. 17. All affected areas of the building have been sealed off while repair work continues. 

School officials say that testing and extra-curricular activities are being accommodated in other parts of the building, and the second semester will start as scheduled on Feb. 3. 

The cause of the fire is still not known.
