Reports: Potential exposure to asbestos in Hildebran old schoolhouse fire

Multiple fire departments were called out to a fire at the old schoolhouse building next to the Town Hall in Hildebran early Monday morning.

Firefighters are continuing to put out hotspots.

Reports are saying people in the area should stay inside their homes due to possible asbestos exposure. 

Traffic is being detoured to Highway 70 for nearby Hildebran Elementary School.

A rehab center is being set up at the Hildebran Methodist Church. 

City council voted to tear down the old schoolhouse last January.
