Small fire at St. Patrick Elementary

No injuries and only minor damage was reported in a small fire Tuesday morning at St. Patrick Elementary School in Charlotte’s Dilworth community.

The fire was reported about 9 a.m. at the school campus in the 1100 block of Buchanan Street. Charlotte fire Capt. Mark Basnight said an automated warning device was triggered due to “a very small fire in the kitchen.”

Students and staff exited the school, per fire regulations. But Basnight said they were able to return a short time later.
