MT. JULIET, Tenn. - A fire inside a classroom has closed Mt. Juliet Elementary on Monday.
The fire happened around 8 a.m. Sunday inside a classroom at the school in the 2500 block of West Division Street.
According to reports, crews responded to the scene and quickly put the fire out.
The fire was mainly contained to one classroom, with water and smoke damage throughout the east wing of the school. Reports from fire crews around 9:30 a.m. stated one room had water on the floor and heat damage, and four other rooms just had water on the floor.
