Sixth-grader Charged with Arson in Elementary School Fires
A 11-year-old girl was charged with arson in connection with the Tuesday morning fires at Paris Elementary School.
The girl, a sixth grader at the school, was released to the custody of her parents.
The fires were reported just before 9 a.m. in two girl’s bathrooms -- one on a lower level and a second on the main floor, according to police. Investigators say paper products were set on fire at both locations. The fire on the main floor went out by itself, but moderate fire and smoke damage was reported to the bathroom on the lower level.
The school was evacuated after the fire alarm was sounded and there were no injuries.
