Local police and firefighters respond to a fire Sunday morning at Egan Junior High School.
Santa Clara County Fire Department investigators are pursuing those responsible for igniting a blaze that completely destroyed one Egan Junior High School classroom and damaged three others over the weekend.
Late Saturday or early Sunday morning someone lit trash on fire and stuffed it into an unsecured outdoor locker, said Keith Rocha, the school’s principal. The fire burned through the locker into an adjacent classroom, causing extensive damage there as well as burning through the electrical system for three other classrooms.
