Authorities say they suspect an arsonist set a Northern California middle school’s cafeteria on fire.
KCBS-Radio reported that Oakland fire fighters found an opened door when they arrived to put out the early morning blaze at Claremont Middle School, leading them to believe the fire was intentionally started.
Battalion Chief Geoff Hunter says the two-alarm fire spread into the cafeteria’s attic and caused $1 million in damage.
School officials say the building will have to be rebuilt.
