A fire at Martin Luther King Elementary School in Youngstown prompted officials to cancel in-person learning for some students Friday. 

Fire crews responded to the school on Mariner Avenue Thursday around 5:50 p.m. 

Officials say there was a furnace fire inside a storage room. 

"It could have been a lot worse, but the sprinkler ended up putting it out... quite a bit of damage to the room of origin," Battalion Chief Charlie Smith said. 

A school spokesperson says there's no damage to the building -- but to allow for clean up and time for the smoke odor to dissipate from the building, all MLK students will be remote on March 19. 

School district officials expect the schedule to return to normal Monday, March 22.
