There was a small number of children in the building at that time in our childcare program and the Director has advised Feller that the children did not witness or even know of the incident while at school.

"The childcare staff did a great job of keeping all of the children away from the back of the school as soon as they were notified by our staff," Feller said. "Our crew along with the local fire department did a thorough clean up of the immediate area."

This is a developing news story. Patch will provide more information once it's made available.
