  • South Sacramento middle school closed due to early morning fire

    Just before 1:45 a.m. (April 6, 2017), a fire broke out in a classroom at James Rutter Middle School in South Sacramento, said Xanthi Pinkerton, Elk Grove School District spokeswoman. Due to the smell of smoke and less available space for students, the school will be closed today. The Sacramento Metropolitan Fire Department will be conducting the investigation to determine the cause, she added.
