LA PINE, OR -- Deschutes County Sheriff's investigators say four people are responsible for a fire that damaged La Pine Middle School. Fire crews responded to the school just after 5 a.m. Wednesday, after a school district employee spotted smoke and flames coming from the roof.
The fire was quickly extinguished but damaged the roof, with limited damage inside the gym.
Investigators say the fire was intentionally set, and identified two 16-year-old boys, a 17-year-old, and 18-year-old Joshua Frontel as suspects. The Sheriff's office says the four are cooperating and believe this was an isolated incident.
