Two juvenile females have been arrested in connection with the Lockney school fire on Sunday night.
Floyd County Sheriff, Paul Raissez, confirmed that the girls were taken into custody at about 10 p.m. Monday. They are now at Garza County Youth Detention Center in Post.
Raissez says each juvenile is charged with felony arson. If convicted they could spend anywhere up to 20 years in prison, and up to a $10,000 fine.
The fire started Sunday night, and had two points of origin. That is what led authorities to suspect arson. Community tips led authorities to the two teens.
Classes are scheduled to resume Wednesday morning in Lockney. The junior high will gather at First United Methodist Church. High School classes will be at the First Baptist Church.
Donations for school supplies are being accepted.
