— Firefighters were called to Wakefield Elementary School when a fire broke out in a HVAC unit in a mobile classroom Friday morning, authorities said.

No one was injured during the blaze and there were no students around during the incident, which occurred about 8 a.m. on the school's campus, which is located at 2400 Wakefield Pines Drive, firefighters said.

A blaze broke out in a HVAC unit in the classroom and it spread but firefighters were able to contain it after a custodian saw smoke and called for help.

The school's maintenance was called in to clean up the area after the fire was extinguished, authorities said.
