Firefighter battled a small fire at Graves County Middle School last night.
Graves County Schools’ PIO Paul Schaumburg says a soda machine in the food lab malfunctioned and caught fire.
The fire started around 12:30 a.m.
Graves County Fire and Rescue Squad put out the fire, but they had to break a window of a door to get into the school.
No one was injured.
Schaumburg says quite a bite of water went into a couple of the classrooms, but most of the damage was contained to the food lab.
The school is cleaning up and will have 7th grade orientation tonight.
