Teen confesses to starting school fire
Authorities say a 17-year-old former student has confessed to starting a fire that damaged Okmulgee High School. Police Chief Joe Prentice says the former student broke into the school late Monday and started a fire. Prentice said water from the building's sprinkler system caused more damage than the flames. Officials don't have an estimate of the damages. Prentice says the former student confessed to starting the blaze. The teen's case has been turned over to the state's Office of Juvenile Affairs.
