Suspects sought in school arson
River Falls police are trying to find those responsible for setting fire to the northside dumpster area of Rocky Branch Elementary School just before 2 a.m. Tuesday. A caller to the Pierce County Sheriff Department dispatcher said flames were visible.
Police Chief Roger Leque said a patrol officer arrived first and tried to put out the blaze with fire extinguishers.
It wasn't until firefighters came soon after that the flames were completely doused.
