No injuries were reported and no further property damage was caused at the school on Lakeview Drive in northeast Gainesville, but the box truck was a total loss, according to Keith Smith, division chief at the Gainesville Fire Department.
The truck belonged to a cleaning company. Smith said no children were in danger as a result of the fire.
