Fire Reported at Early Childhood Center in Kingston, Massachusetts

Police and fire officials responded to a fire at an early childhood center in Kingston, Massachusetts on Monday afternoon.

The 2-alarm fire was reported at 251 Bishops Highway, police said.

The center was closed at the time of the fire.

No one had to be rescued, and no one was injured.

The fire was in the basement, and an initial report shows the cause was a mechanical issue of some sort.

The fire is under investigation and an exact cause will be determined.

At the time of the fire, aerial footage from NBC Boston's Sky Ranger helicopter showed about a dozen police and fire vehicles at the scene, with a ladder extended to the roof of the building.

The center will most likely be closed for the remainder of the week.

No further information was immediately available.
