This afternoon someone threw fireworks through a window at John Bidwell Elementary School on 65th Avenue. The Sacramento Fire Department responded to the school for a fire alarm. They arrived and found light smoke, and the remnants of fireworks in a Kindergarten classroom.
The fireworks burned two small portions of carpet in the classroom. Although the damage was minimal, there were numerous boxes with paper goods in the class that could have easily ignited.
Investigators from the Sacramento Fire Department are currently trying to determine who did this. There were reports of children in the area playing with fireworks. So far there are no suspects.
Anyone with any information on this case is encouraged to contact the Sacramento Fire Department’s Arson Tip Line at (916) 808-8732.
