A small bathroom fire was started at Hannan Elementary this morning just a few minutes after school began, according to Valerie Fuller, director of communications for the Muscogee County School District.
Fuller said a first grade student allegedly started a fire with matches and a toilet paper roll in a bathroom. There have been no injuries reported.
The students and staff remained outside for several minutes while emergency officials and the fire department put out the contained fire. Fuller said school started "just a little bit late."
