Arson fire set at Carlsbad elementary school

An arson fire was set at a Carlsbad elementary school Wednesday, causing about $1 million in damage to a teacher’s work room, but it did not interfere with classes, police and school officials said.

The fire at Aviara Oaks Elementary at 6900 Ambrosia Lane was reported around 1:30 a.m., according to Carlsbad police Sgt. Greg White.

Firefighters confined the blaze to one structure, the sergeant said, adding that damage to the structure and its content was estimated at $1 million. The cause was arson, he said.

The school was open Wednesday despite the early morning disturbance,
according to a school secretary.
