NORTH ADAMS, Mass.—The North Adams Public School Brayton Elementary closed early Wednesday.
The fire alarm at Brayton Elementary was activated on Wednesday afternoon.
The fire department is on site at the school and determined that a leak of hydraulic fluid caused the alarm to go off.
There is no immediate danger to students, but the building had to be evacuated while the elevator is repaired.
Since the repair cannot be done within an hour, the school will close at 1:45 p.m. Wednesday.
