Two juveniles in custody after school fire in Fredericktown

FREDERICKTOWN — Two juveniles are in custody following a weekend fire that destroyed Fredericktown Middle School.

The Park Hills Daily Journal reported that middle school students will not have classes this week as district leaders try to figure out where to send them.

Names of the suspects in custody, and their ages, have not been released. It wasn't immediately clear if they have been charged. They are being held at a juvenile detention center.

No one was hurt in the fire that started in the main office and quickly spread.

About 500 students attend the middle school in the eastern Missouri town.
