FOND DU LAC (NBC 26) — Police and firefighters are looking into what they're calling a suspicious fire at Fond du Lac High School.

The Fond du Lac Police Department says the fire happened on Wednesday shortly after 3:30 p.m.

Neighbors shared their reactions to the fire with NBC 26.

"It's really appalling in that that something like that has to happen in a community, and that whether it's young adults or it's an adult or whoever started it," community member Bryan Koepke said.

Cardinal Stadium, including the concession stand bathroom where the fire took place, was just built last summer.

"It's a terrible thing that people have to destroy something that is new and something that is good for our community," community member Charles Bloenorn said.

Police are asking anyone who has information about the fire to contact Detective Lee Mikulec at (920) 322-3726 or the Crime Alert line at (920) 322-3740. Callers can also request to remain anonymous.

Police say there is a reward worth up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of the suspect(s). The Wisconsin Arson Tipline is 1-800-362-3005. Callers can also remain anonymous.
