Arsonists damage school libraries in CA and MI
Police say an arsonist set an early morning fire Sunday in the Grand Haven, MI, High School library that caused $50,000 in damage.
Meanwhile, in CA, SFGate Reports the fire at the K-5 year-round school for 850 students is the seventh fire at a Bay Area school in as many weeks and authorities are trying to determine whether this fire is linked to any of the others.
The fire, which caused an estimated $100,000 in total damage, is considered suspicious, Fairfield Fire Department Capt. Jeff Chandler said. Investigators found evidence that someone tried to set leaves on fire, as well as some cardboard and paper, at two sites outside the school's multipurpose room, Chandler said.
