Dumpster fire at Beatrice elementary school

BEATRICE, Neb. -- Beatrice Firefighters were summoned Sunday afternoon to put out a fire in a dumpster. The fire occurred next to Stoddard Elementary School, at the south side of the building.

Captain Craig Fisher says the cause of the fire is suspicious. A reporting party told fire personnel that two juveniles had been in the area of the dumpster, but were not there when firefighters arrived.

Firefighters were sent to the scene at around 3:30 p.m., Sunday. There was no damage to the school. The cause was not immediately known.
