MAULDIN, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A portable classroom at a Greenville County school is a complete loss after a fire early Saturday morning. 

Spokesperson for Greenville County Schools Oby Lyles said an electrical short in a heating unit is suspected to be the cause of the blaze that burned the portable classroom behind Mauldin Middle School. 

Lyles said the classroom was used two periods a day for English for speakers of other languages classes. 

Classes previously held in the room will be temporarily moved to other rooms as they determine a permanent replacement, Lyles said.
