PITTSBORO — Five mobile units at North Chatham Elementary School were destroyed in a fire overnight Saturday, according to Chatham County Schools.

No one was injured in the incident.

The school is working to create an inventory of what was lost. The units were used for elective classes, staff offices and storage. Chatham County Schools does not know the cause of the fire is awaiting word from North Chatham Fire Department investigators. CCS is also evaluating the value of the materials lost. 

CCS Public Information Officer Nancy Wykle told the News + Record that North Chatham wanted to reassure families the school's main building is safe and that the fire will not affect day-to-day learning this week.

Classes will do a talking circle to talk about what happened to help students with this news, Wykle said, and counselors will be on campus Monday to assist staff and students.

“We are so glad no one was injured,” said Principal Emily Bivins. “We want to put our families’ minds at ease that this will not affect the safety of our school or our learning environment. We appreciate our community’s support as we move forward from this.”
