GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Investigators are trying to figure out the cause of a fire at a Glendale elementary school.

KTVK-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1wf5ar0) that the blaze began Friday afternoon at Glenn Burton Elementary School inside storage sheds.

Authorities say the fire quickly spread to the attic of a classroom.

They say firefighters who happened to be in the vicinity spotted smoke and followed it to the school.

Crews managed to keep the fire from spreading to the main campus building.

School supplies inside the sheds were destroyed.

Glendale fire officials say they have yet to determine whether the damaged classroom can be salvaged.

The classroom is owned by Catholic charities and was used for Early Head-Start programs.
