EDITOR'S NOTE: The previous version of this story included incorrect information provided to WPTV by Palm Beach County Fire Rescue. The agency said Discovery Key Elementary School was struck by lightning on Monday, however the Palm Beach County School District now says a lighting issue, not lightning, was to blame.

A lighting issue caused smoke inside a classroom at a Palm Beach County elementary school on Monday, a school district spokesperson says.

According to Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, crews responded to Discovery Key Elementary School, located at 3550 Lyons Road, around 1:40 p.m.

Firefighters said when they arrived on scene, there was light smoke inside a classroom, but no fire.

There are no reports of any injuries at the school.
