Investigators Say California High School Fire Intentionally Set

May 24, 2011

Investigators say a fire that damaged offices at a San Bernardino County High School was intentionally set.

County Fire spokesperson Tracey Martinez says the blaze was reported early Saturday inside the administrative building at Bloomington High School.

Crews from Rialto and Colton assisted County Fire in knocking down the flames in about 40 minutes. There were no injuries.

Early estimates place the damage at over $250,000.

School officials are working to secure and clean up the area before students return to school on Monday.

Martinez says arson investigators will try to determine the cause of the fire.

Bloomington High is part of the Colton Joint Unified School District.
