    Firefighters are trying to figure out what sparked a fire at an elementary school in Vernon early Wednesday morning.

    Firefighters were called to fight a fire inside of Maple Street School around midnight.

    Firefighters from other towns including Ellington and Manchester were also called in to provide extra help.

    Nobody was inside of the school at the time and nobody was hurt.

    There's no visible damage from the outside, but our crew reported seeing pieces of burnt wood on the sidewalk.

    The fire marshal has not released the cause of the fire.
