Coffee County- It was an all night job for Satilla Rural Electric crews.
They had to replace a power pole after it was burned by the flames. But first the fire destroyed the original building of West Green Elementary School.
"The Little Red School House they called it was on the historical society list of buildings in the state of Georgia," said Jimmy Youngblood, maintenance director for the Coffee County School System.
What's left of the Little Red School House is now dark with ash after the blaze burned for almost two hours.
"We gotta dry hydrant across town over there and they were going back to it, filling up and coming back," said Coffee County Fire Chief Ralph Jowers.
The Fire Chief doesn't know what started the blaze Monday night. But he does expect to have more information Tuesday.
The historical building is history now. It was being used as a school nurses station. But there's little left of the longtime landmark, except a set of cement stairs and a charred desk.
"It was the last of the old school that was here," Jowers said. There was also damage to two portables on the school property, one used for storage and the other for a classroom and some damage to the outside of the cafeteria pantry. But it's not enough to keep the school bell from ringing Tuesday morning.
"From my understanding, there will be school tomorrow," Jowers said.
So the linemen worked through the night to restore power, to ensure the school day goes on. But it will go on without the one room where it all began.
