TULSA, Oklahoma -

Crews will begin tearing down the historic Barnard Elementary building Tuesday.

Tulsa Public Schools paid nearly $200,000 for the demolition project, after a fire gutted the school last month.

The fire displaced the students and teachers of Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences, who were moved into the empty Sequoyah Elementary School building.

Crews will have to remove asbestos and tear down the unstable brick walls.

The job is expected to take about a month.

By the time firefighters got the call, it was too late. They say the man was using portable heaters, but it’s not clear if that was the cause. The State Fire Marshal is still investigating.
