Lemon Bay High School student charged, Fire Marshall determined arson


A small structure fire creating several hallways to fill with thick black smoke led to the evacuation of Lemon Bay High School students yesterday morning. Students were safely led out of school on April 13th, when the fire alarm was set off by a small fire within the boys bathroom. The School Resource Officer alerted dispatch to the fire who promptly dispatched the Englewood Fire Department and additional deputies to the scene.


After the fire was safely extinguished and the smoke cleared, students were allowed to reenter the building and resume learning. The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations unit and the State Fire Marshall took over the scene.
