An investigation is underway at Fullerton Union High School following a suspicious fire Tuesday. Firefighters responded to the school located on East Chapman Avenue just after 2 a.m. following a report of a ringing alarm, according to ABC News.
Someone of some people broke thru a glass door, smashed a couple of trophy cases and started a desk on fire that damaged desks, computers and other equipment. Sgt. Jeff Stuart estimates the damage at $20,000, according to Fox News.
Students arriving at school were shocked to find out how much damage had been caused, according to LAIST. “Whoever did it was probably messed up,” said one student while another called it “a stupid move,” adding, “Really?” A more articulate student said this makes him feel “disrespected. That’s something that you’re taking away from everyone, collectively.”
The fire didn’t affect classes, which were in session Tuesday morning. A suspect hasn’t been identified. Anyone with information should contact Fullerton police at 714-738-6800, according to the O.C. Register.
