The Spring Lake Fire Department (SLFD) says units arrived at the school after 6 a.m. to find no signs of fire from the outside. Subsequent investigations revealed a small fire that had been put out by a sprinkler inside one of the classrooms, officials explain.
We’re told firefighters remained on scene to help clear out smoke and assist with the school’s cleanup efforts.
SLFD says the incident is an example of how sprinkler systems minimize fire damage and overall risks to public safety.
The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
