Classes will not be in session at the school on Monday or Tuesday because of the fire. The school was already scheduled to be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday for the remainder of the week. About 400 students attend the school.
Crews went to the school about 4 a.m. after receiving a 911 call about a large fire. They found the fire in the library, and it spread throughout the roof of the school.
It took two hours for crews from the Blanding and Monticello fire departments to extinguish the flames. The roof was also damaged, and several surrounding classrooms suffered smoke and water damage. No one was hurt.
The police also suspect the pair of burglarizing the high school and Albert R. Lyman Middle School five times in the past three weeks. Windows were broken and offices were trashed, among other activity.
The two men were booked into San Juan County jail under suspicion of second-degree felony arson and five counts of third-degree felony burglary.
White and Stolzer are former students of the high school, Eldridge said. A search of Utah court records shows no criminal history for either man.
As far as investigators can tell, their actions weren't against any one person at the school White and Stolzer were "just mad" at the school in general, Eldridge said.
