Despite fire, classes to go on at Mintz Elementary in Brandon

BRANDON — A possible lightning strike sparked a fire Thursday on the roof of Mintz Elementary School, authorities said.

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue responded to the school, 1510 Heather Lakes Blvd., about 4:30 p.m. and was able to put it out, according to Fire Rescue spokesman Ronnie Rivera.

Several classrooms sustained water damage, according to Hillsborough County Public Schools spokesman Stephen Hegarty, but classes will not be delayed Friday.
