MOUNT JULIET, TN (WSMV) - Crews extinguished a fire that started in a classroom at Mount Juliet Elementary Monday morning. 

Wilson County Schools tell us teachers in the building pulled the fire alarm when they saw smoke and flames inside a classroom around 7 a.m. 

Mount Juliet Police says the fire was put out by the school sprinkler system and responding firefighters. The classroom did sustain smoke and water damage.

The flames came from the A/C heating unit that caught fire. Officials were not able to determine why the fire started. 

There were no reported injuries and today is a remote-learning day for students at the school. 

Wilson County Schools say that the district's hybrid schedule allows them to work around the classroom disruption. 

Clean-up crews will be working to restore the room all day.
