School opened on time today at Mead Hall Episcopal School in Aiken, despite a fire overnight in the art building.

Firefighters got the call around 2:15 a.m. after public safety officers on patrol spotted the flames.

Authorities say the art cottage was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived.

The building was destroyed, but authorities still don’t know what started the fire.

Students were able to attend classes since the fire was in a separate building.
