High School Fire Forces Evacuation, No Known Damage

Arson is suspected in a fire at a Nash County high school Friday morning.

Authorities say it happened at Southern Nash High School shortly before 10:00 a.m.

A spokesman for Nash/Rocky Mount Schools say they believe a student started the fire in a trash can that was inside a restroom.

Fire alarms inside went off and students were evacuated, but they soon were let back inside. The school system says there was no known damage and the fire was more of a disruption than anything else.
