GREENLAND (KFSM) - The Fayetteville Fire Department responded to a fire at a shed behind the Greenland School District property Tuesday (July 24) night.

Video posted on the Washington County Sheriff's Office Facebook page shows crews working to extinguish flames at a shed behind the Greenland School's bus garage. A tractor and other equipment were damaged in the fire. While the fire burned close to the buses, only minor damage to a couple of the buses was reported.

Greenland Schools superintendent Dr. Andrea Martin told 5NEWS  crews were able to put out the flames quickly, and insurance adjusters are now assessing the damage.

Martin said she's thankful, because it could have been worse.

"There's fuel and oil and all kinds of things," she said. "The bus garage had minimal damage. There was minimal damage to two of our buses.

"We're just going to carry on and get ready for school," she said.

Both the Fayetteville Fire Department and West Fork Fire Department were at the scene.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.  No injures were reported. The district is now trying to figure out how and when they can replace the equipment, hopefully before school starts on Aug. 13.
