SHELBY, NC (WBTV) - A huge fire at an abandoned school building is under investigation in Shelby after the fire sparked early Thursday evening.

According to Shelby firefighters, no one was injured when the three-story building caught fire along Hudson Street. This is the old Cleveland High School.

Officials on scene say the building was used about a year ago as a church, but power to the building has not been turned on in a while.

Crews had to cut power to a nearby neighborhood to be able to fight the flames because the fire truck's boom was too close to power lines.
