Arsonist Strikes Fullerton High School Office

Posted: Updated:
Fullerton, CA -

(FOX 11) Why would anyone start a fire at a school's administration office? Start That's one of the many questions investigators are trying to answer in the aftermath of a strange middle-of-the-night fire at Fullerton Union High School.

It was 2am Tuesday morning when they got the call there was smoke and fire at the school's administration office. 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.

But, that question "why?" Students I spoke with asked it. Sgt. Stuart couldn't answer it. The principal told me "it was vandalism." The Sgt. says it was vandalism, arson and burglary. Whatever you call it, it was a strange fire. No notes were left. Nothing was taken. The only thing left behind was the damage left behind by whoever broke into the school in the middle of the night.

    Reports of a 16-foot-long exotic snake slithering around New Jersey's largest lake are apparently a suburban legend or the snake just isn't hungry.
    A 16-foot-long exotic snake reportedly slithering around New Jersey's largest lake is apparently a suburban legend. Or the snake just isn't hungry. The state has stopped looking for the reptile after scientists failed to find any evidence of it in Lake Hopatcong and traps baited with chicken were left untouched. Three unconfirmed sightings this month of a snake, perhaps an anaconda as long as 16 feet, raised concerns among visitors and swimmers.
