Tuesday morning at 8:13 a.m., Hastings Fire Department was called to Barry County Christian School on the report of a fire.
“The maintenance man had it put out before we got there,” Fire Chief Roger Caris said.
A small fire was caused by a plastic trifolder on top of a natural gas wall heater in the room they are using as a library, Caris said. The main effect was the library and gymnasium were filled with smoke. The building was evacuated following the protocol for those situations.
