Dispatchers from 911 have confirmed that the old Baker High School in South Columbus is on fire.
The first call about the fire came in at 8:46 p.m. and eight trucks were sent there.
Massive flames surround the southeast side of building. There are at least two cranes spraying water. A huge crowd stands by a nearby Chevron gas station.
Spectator Rosalyn McGuire, Baker class of 1991, said, "I had to see it for myself. I know it's been abandoned, but it's a part of our history."
