Significant damage after arsons at school in Milton: Halton police

One portable will have to be replaced and another suffered damage after books and papers were “deliberately ignited” at a public school in Milton, Ont., over the weekend, Halton police said Monday.

The arsons at Bruce Trail Public School in Milton occurred around 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

Milton Fire Services was called because of the large amount of smoke seen coming from a portable, police said, and when crews arrived, a second smaller fire was found in another portable.

Both fires were extinguished and no injuries were reported. Police also say they found hateful graffiti on the walls of the portables.

The Halton District School Board said impacted classes have been relocated inside of the school and that families and staff were “notified over the weekend.”

“As this is an ongoing police investigation, please contact Halton Police for additional information,” the board added.
