UPDATE: The Moline Fire Department responded to the abandoned McKinley Elementary School for a reported fire just before 3pm on April 3.
When crews arrived they found smoke coming out on two sides of the muti-story building. There was a report that people were in the area just prior to the start of the fire, but no one was found in the building after a search of all the floors.
It took about 2 hours the fire to put out and clean up the scene.
The damage to the building is estimated to be less than $5000.
