Suspicious Fire In Old School Building

KSAL StaffMarch 17, 2014

Police in the south-central Kansas community of Stafford say a fire that burned down the town’s old high school over the weekend is being investigated as arson.

A police officer on patrol Saturday night spotted a major fire coming out of the building’s third floor around 10 p.m. Stafford Police Chief Doug Brown says the wind send embers flying, causing up to a dozen smaller fires in a two-block area.

The former high school was more than 90 years old and had closed in the late 1990s when a new school opened. Brown says the building is now owned by a Texas man who planned to open a school for Vietnamese children in the building.
