Fresno fire investigators are looking into two arson fires inside Edith B. Storey Elementary classroom in southeast Fresno.
A fire broke out in the classroom just before 8 p.m. Saturday. The classroom’s sprinkler system helped extinguish the fire, but the water caused major damage to the classroom and the teacher’s supplies and books, Fresno Fire spokesman Robert Castillo said in a news release.
It was the second fire in the classroom within 24 hours.
Firefighters said someone broke out a window and set multiple fires inside the classroom.
