Sprinklers set off at Lincoln Elementary, but no injuries

KINGSPORT — Lincoln Elementary experienced an incident with the sprinkler system Thursday afternoon, a situation that school system spokeswoman Marybeth McClain said required students and staff to evacuate the building. 

It was caused by a kiln in an art room. 

All students and staff were safe and did an excellent job of evacuating the building in a safe and timely manner, she said. 

Kingsport Fire Department responded immediately and was on site to assist with clean-up efforts, McClain added. 

All third-, fourth- and fifth-grade car riders were picked up Thursday in the parking lot of Mafair United Methodist Church, but that was for Thursday only, she said.
