PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Two fires at a Portland high school that forced classes to be dismissed have been ruled arson and are connected to two other recent fires at the school.

KOIN-TV reports (https://goo.gl/1RUK1u ) two fires were reported Monday at Madison High School. One was discovered in a bathroom, and the other was in a food storage room. Both fires were extinguished quickly and no injuries have been reported.

The blazes caused the school to be evacuated. Students and staff were later dismissed due to smoky hallways.

Another two fires were reportedly set at the school a week ago.

Officials estimate the damage of the four fires at $50,000.



Investigators believe that one or more students are setting the fires.

An investigation is ongoing.
