SPARTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Hancock County is looking to a local technical college to use some of its space after a fire destroyed the county's court house earlier this week.

Hancock County Commissioners said they contacted Oconee Fall Line Technical College on Tuesday.

President Dr. Lloyd Horadan said he is working with his staff and the Technical College System of Georgia to try to accommodate the emergency request. There is no official decision for the courthouse to use space from the college.

Hancock fire officials say the fire started on the second floor and they have closed the investigation ruling it undetermined.

The building was 130 years old and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
