Investigators say they are looking for suspects in connection with a fire that seriously damaged Penn Wood High School in Delaware County, which will now be closed for the remainder of the school year.

Officials say they are working on a modified schedule for students at Penn Wood High School in Lansdowne. Authorities say someone set fire to the building before 4 a.m. Thursday, damaging the lobby and several classrooms.

Fire officials say the blaze appears to have been intentionally set and that police found a door pried open. District Attorney Jack Whelan says authorities are looking for one or two individuals believed to be involved in the arson.
