ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

Asheville firefighters battled a blaze at the former Isaac Dickson Elementary School site that is in the process of being demolished.

The former elementary school slated for demolition is located on Hill Street near Interstate 240 and Patton Avenue.

In 2012, the Buncombe County Commissioners approved funding to build a new Isaac Dickson Elementary School. The schools is temporarily meeting at 90 Montford Ave., according to their Facebook page.

The page had an update about the fire posted that said they were "safe and sound" at their temporary location. Last week, photos of the old school were posted on the page showing the demolition progress.

There is no word yet what sparked Tuesday's fire. Firefighters reported that the fire was out about 11:30 a.m.

FOX Carolina has a crew headed to the scene.
