Red Deer City RCMP are searching for two suspects who lit a fire in a garbage receptacle at Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School early Tuesday morning.

Police and the Red Deer fire investigator responded in the morning when staff arrived and noticed damage to the exterior of the building.

Video surveillance shows two males setting debris from the school wood shop on fire around 1 a.m. The suspects remained at the scene for some time while the fire was burning, before leaving. They did not enter the school.

By the time staff arrived in the morning, the fire had burned itself out, said Cpl. Leanne Molzahn with the RCMP. However, there was heat damage to the exterior of the building.

Bruce Buruma with Red Deer Public School District said the damage estimate is around $3,000.

Buruma confirmed that the fire has had no effect on classes.

The first suspect has medium length brown hair, and was wearing jeans, a hoodie and a dark jacket.

The second was wearing dark clothing and a white tuque.

The fire is being treated as mischief, said Molzahn.
