STURGIS (WKZO) -- Sturgis Police have taken a 15-year-old into custody for allegedly starting a fire in the bathroom of Sturgis High School on Thursday.

Firefighters were dispatched at about 1:30, but by the time they arrived, staff had already put the fire out.

It had been started in a paper towel dispenser, which was removed from the building.

Firefighters used fans to blow the smoke out of the building.

Investigators began interviews and reviewed security video and identified the 15-year-old who is being held in Juvenile detention, charged with arson.
