Reindeer Lake School in Southend has been closed all week after an arson fire last Friday.

RCMP say the fire originated out of one of the classrooms at around 7 pm February 20, and was extinguished by school staff.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.

RCMP Cst. Brady Koshman says there are no suspects at this time, and they are seeking the public’s help.

“It is pretty fresh in everyone’s mind, so the sooner we can get any tips the faster we can react and hopefully catch anyone responsible for this.”

Koshman says there was no significant fire damage, but the school was heavily damaged by smoke and the sprinkler system.

It is believed the school is salvageable, but it will take some time for the repairs.

Koshman says community members have been shocked and angered by the fire.

“This isn’t exactly an everyday thing. The school is the centre of the community and hopefully we can get some help from them.”

School officials have been meeting this week to determine the plans for the school going forward.
