A school in south Seattle had to cancel some classes after someone allegedly set fire to one of their buildings. St. Bernadette Catholic School on SW 128th Street in White Center released a statement Thursday, saying a fire caused major damage to their primary building, which houses the pre-school to third-grade classrooms. It happened overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning. School leaders said cleaners are working around the clock and through the weekend to get things fixed up by Monday, but in the meantime, PS, PK, and K-3 classes are canceled. St. Bernadette officials believe the fire was an act of arson. School officials said the fire did not have any effect on the upper building, so fourth-eighth grades have been able to stay on schedule.
