A historic school in Howell has been destroyed in a fire.

The Fleming School was a Michigan State historic site and vintage schoolhouse renovated in the 1990s for use by Howell schoolchildren.

Howell Deputy Fire Chief Ron Hicks calls it a "total loss." Passers-by called in the fire early Friday.

The fire marshal's report could be completed by Monday, but Chief Andy Pless tells the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus that the fire is considered suspicious.

The school originally was a log building erected in 1850 and was replaced in 1880 with the current one-room schoolhouse. It was closed in 1957.

In 1993, it was restored and served as an educational site for Howell Public Schools students.
