A second fire was apparently set at the Old Watauga High early this morning, and three suspects have been arrested and charged.  Watauga deputies and Boone Police responded at 1:13 to 400 High School Drive after reports of individuals inside the old Watauga High School. The release said that three individuals were located and transported to the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office. An investigation into the incident was conducted by the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office and the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, and as a result, three individuals were charged.

But, to be clear, based on the investigation the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office and the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation do not believe that this incident is related to the fire incident reported at the old Watauga County High School to Boone Police Department on February 14th.  That incident is currently under investigation by the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office and the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation. Anyone with information concerning the February 14, 2012 incident is encouraged to contact Crimestoppers at 828-268-6959 or Watauga County Sheriff’s Office at 828-264-3761.
