Fire crews were able to quickly knock out a fire Wednesday at a vacant school building.
According to officials with the Coldwater Fire Department, the old Franklin school building had a small fire that was reported just after 8 p.m. Reports indicate that emergency responders were dispatched to the closed school, located on South Fremont Street, on a report of a fire that was in a stairwell.

After a routine search, crews concluded that no one was inside the school during the incident.
No injuries were reported. Portions of nearby roadways were blocked for response teams.
The structure is still owned by the Coldwater School District.
