Abandoned Limestone County school gym burns


Huntsville firefighters battled a fire at an abandoned school on Mooresville Road in Limestone County early Monday morning.

The fire started in the gymnasium of what used to be the Belle Mina School. Investigators said the fire may be suspicious.

Firefighters got the call around 1:30 a.m. Monday morning. They saw flames and smoke when they got there. They had to block off traffic in the area in order to run a water line across the road.

The building has heavily damage, including a collapsed roof.

Hot spots flared up again later that morning, but firefighters were able to put the flames out again.
