ADA, Okla. -- The Ada Fire Marshal continued the investigation Monday into who started a fire at the Junior High campus last week.

Marshal Justin Priest said two suspects were caught on a surveillance camera before setting the school on fire last Friday.

A day before the school's fire, a house was set on fire and two grass fires were started.

Although none of the events have been linked together, Priest is investigating them all.

"I plan to do everything I can to catch and prosecute them," Priest said.

Priest said whoever is responsible for the school fire could face up to 25 years in jail.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Ada Fire Marshal at (580) 332-2824.
