A possible new location may have been found for some Moline students displaced by a fire last weekend. Thursday night the Moline School Board will hold an "emergency meeting."

And the subject is "the possible sale, purchase, or lease of property." 

A spokesman says the board will hold a closed session first, and then meet in public session for a possible decision, and "it's in relation to Franklin School."

Franklin has been closed all week following a fire on Sunday. Since then, district officials have been looking for a site to move all 270 students in grades K through 5, and about 20 staff.
