Small fire evacuates Largo's Anona Elementary

LARGO — Anona Elementary School was briefly evacuated Monday while firefighters put out a small fire on the school's roof, authorities said.

The fire was reported at 11:37 a.m. The fire started in an area of the roof that was being repaired by workers, according to Largo Fire Rescue District Chief David Mixson.

The part of the roof that caught fire was over a classroom at the school, 12301 Indian Rocks Road, which is why the evacuation was ordered, said Mixson. But he said the fire was quickly brought under control and the evacuation ended around noon.

No one was injured. The cause of the fire and how much damage it caused have not yet been released by Largo Fire Rescue.
