No injuries in day care fire

A small fire forced the evacuation of a Clayton County day care center Friday morning.

Clayton County Fire Battalion Chief Landry Merkison said a contractor working on plumbing at the Safe Haven Learning Academy apparently started the fire around 10:30 a.m. Fire crews arrived shortly thereafter. No injuries were reported.

"It was mainly just a lot of smoke," Merkison said. "It didn't take them [firefighters] any time to get it out."

Safe Haven Learning Academy is located at 6343 Tara Boulevard, Jonesboro.
