Delta firefighters paid a visit to Heath Traditional Elementary school on Tuesday (April 22), but unlike the week before, there was no emergency.

Students at the North Delta elementary school invited members of the Delta Fire Department so they they could personally thank them for the work they did saving the school from fire on April 14.

Firefighters were called at about 2 a.m. that morning to deal with the blaze. While it was put out quickly, one classroom was badly damaged and there was smoke and water damage in other areas. Most students were able to return to class April 16, while kindergarten students had to wait until April 17.

Students at the school wrote thank you letters to the firefighters and delivered them during the visit.
