Authorities are investigating a fire at Roosevelt High School on Wednesday as a possible arson. A bungalow classroom in the Boyle Heights high school was discovered to be on fire early in the morning around 4:00 a.m., the Los Angeles Times reports. The fire was extinguished and only caused smoke damage. A fire captain tells KTLA that the fire is considered to be suspicious. Investigators are looking into the possibility that someone climbed a fence to enter the school and set the classroom on fire from within the campus.
School carried on today and classes were not canceled.
