Valdosta--  Investigators have found multiple points of ignition throughout the Pinevale Learning Center off Old Lake Park Road.  Police are interviewing suspects this afternoon.

At least 100 firefighters battled the fire which started shortly before 9:30PM. About 170 students attend the school.  Administrators called off classes for Wednesday but hope to resume classes Thursday at the old elemntary school building next door. 

"Tomorrow we will be doing all the moving, putting in the internet connection, putting in mobile labs, our staff will be working all night and first thing in the morning and those kids will be back into the classroom on Thursday morning," said Superintendent Sam Allen. Arson dogs were brought in to assist in the investigation.

Parents can look for updated information at www.gocats.org or by calling the school system's central office at 229-333-8500.
