LIVONIA — Fire broke out at about 11:15 Thursday morning at the David P. DeLoria Elementary School in Livonia.
School was closed at the time due to the Fourth-of-July and summer vacation, but construction workers were repairing a roof at the time the fire started.
Initial reports are that the fire started near or in an electrical generator being used for the construction work.
Over 50 firefighters from over 7 different agencies responded to the fire.
East Avon had their ladder truck in the air first as they hosed down the roof area that was above the library.
Workers tried desperatly to extinguish the fire but could not get the blaze under control on their own. No official word on the damage to the school but with the amount of water being used, looks to be quite extensive.
