An early morning fire has damaged two classrooms in an eleven unit modular classroom building located at Pinecrest High School in Southern Pines.
Moore County Schools Advisor for Community Relations Tim Lussier reports that the fire was discovered at about 6:15 am, well before the normal 8:45 am start time.
No injuries were reported. The modular unit is detached from other campus buildings. Though the fire apparently damaged only two classrooms, the entire structure, which is used primarily for freshman classes, will be taken out of service; and classes will be relocated to other parts of the campus.
Fire department officials are investigating the cause of the fire.
