FLORISSANT • There will be no school on Tuesday at Halls Ferry Elementary School in Florissant due to a fire in a kiln, Ferguson-Florissant district officials announced Monday night.
The fire was contained to one room in the art department when a kiln overheated Monday evening and caught fire. “The fire was contained to the art closet which is a concrete room that functioned as intended; however, smoke and soot spread through parts of the building,” a statement from the district said.
Cleaning and restoration specialists are working to repair and clean the damage.
The school is at 13585 New Halls Ferry Road.
