Residents living near the school said flames were flying around 9:30 p.m. About eight fire trucks responded to the scene. 

The fire was under control as of 9:50 p.m. Sunday.

    Talk about over dramatic - the fire did little damage according to their own (WRAL's) report this morning - really "tore through the classroom" - talk about sensationalizing a very small story and scaring people needlessly.
