Thick smoke rolled into the edge of campus this afternoon as the Whaley House, located at 624 East Kearsley Street, caught fire.

David Cox Jr., chief of fire for the Flint Fire Department, said he got the call at 2:42 p.m. that the historical museum’s roof was ablaze. According to the chief, work was being done on the roof at the time of the fire. The exact cause and amount of damage are still unknown at time of publication. There were roughly 16 firefighters on the scene.

“I came out the front door and saw black smoke,” Dru Wells, 63, of Pearson Street said. “I’ve been in the area 19 years and I’ve never heard of anything happening like this (to the Whaley House).”

The story will be updated as information becomes available.
