Crews battled a large fire at Lee Elementary School of Technology in Tampa, Florida, on September 12.

The school is named after Confederate general Robert E. Lee. Community members have asked for a name change in light of recent monument controversies.

The three-alarm fire was reported just before 7 pm, and school was not in session, according to ABC Action News. No injuries were reported. Officials told WFLA that a preliminary investigation indicated the fire wasn’t suspicious. Credit: Twitter/DylanChase1991 via Storyful
