I have a feature class with some fields that i would like to remove the numeric characters from but just the numbers and only from the fist 3 characters of the attribute i need to able to keep the # and numbers at the end.

The fields look like this


FireDist HighwayDist SchoolDist
FireDist  699 HWY #4763 School #132
710 Rural Fire690 HWY #1762 School #131
720 Rural Fire693 HWY #2770 School #139
NOT in First Dist696 HWY #3765 School #134



I am not sure who to use arcpy to only look at the first 3 characters and if they are numeric to strip them and to strip it from all 3 fields at once. I would be grateful for some help.
