A historic structure in Turkey’s southwestern province of Denizli burned down on Sunday night, the Diken news website reported.

The blaze reportedly broke out on the roof of the Çal Gazi Pasha School.

A crew of firefighters was dispatched to the scene to contain the blaze.

The roof as well as all the wooden parts of the building were severely damaged.

The building has been reportedly undergoing restoration of its facade. First constructed as a primary school in 1928 and turned into accommodation for teachers in 1999, the neoclassical building is considered a rare cultural heritage from the early years of the Republic of Turkey.
