$5K reward offered for information about fire set inside Reading High School

READING, MASS. (WHDH) - Authorities are offering a $5,000 reward for information about a fire that was set inside Reading Memorial High School, officials said.

A trash can was set ablaze in a third-floor bathroom last Friday, according to Superintendent John F. Doherty.

Escalating incidents of vandalism have prompted school officials to host a meeting to speak with parents and staff in an attempt to get to the bottom of the issue.

The other incidents leading up to the bathroom fire also took place inside the boy’s bathrooms.

At this point, it is unclear if those incidents are related.

Anyone with information is asked to contact 1-800-682-9229.
