FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Officials said the fire at a vacant Fort Wayne school building Sunday afternoon was intentionally set.
Fort Wayne firefighters were called to White’s School of the Arts Community Development Programs Inc. at 2700 E. Maple Grove Avenue around 3 p.m.
There was heavy fire coming from the front office area when crews arrived. Firefighters had to force their way in through chained doors. They searched the building and no one was inside. It took crews a while to get all the smoke out of the school because it’s a large building.
Investigators are asking anyone who might know who started the fire to call Crime Stoppers at (260) 436-STOP (7867).
