WILLIAMSBURG, Mass. (WWLP) – Police and fire officials are trying to determine the cause of an electrical fire at a Hampshire County elementary school late Friday afternoon.
The Williamsburg Police and Fire Departments were called to the Anne T. Dunphy School for a general fire alarm around 4:45 p.m. Crews found a small electrical fire in the Kiln room upon arrival and quickly put it out.
Mutual aid form Chesterfield and Northampton along with Highland Ambulance were initially called but later canceled because the electrical fire was controlled.
Fire crews remained at the school for about an hour, checking for extension and to assist with ventilating the building. It is unclear if any students or staff members were inside the school building during the time of the electrical fire or if anyone was injured.
The electrical fire caused damages to the electrical panel and the wall behind the panel.
