A fire at Fort Stewart's Diamond Elementary School today caused no injuries and only minor damage, according to a Fort Stewart spokesman.

One report said students and faculty were evacuated, but the official report did not mention that.

Kevin Larson said a fire suppression system extinguished a small fire this morning when a pipe leaked gas into an electrical panel where it ignited. Minor damages are being repaired, he said.

The school remains open and operating on a normal schedule, but parents can choose to pick their children up. The school will be open tomorrow for normal operations.

Call the Fort Stewart School Liaison Office for more information at (912) 767-6533.
