EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A Eugene police spokeswoman says a fire that burned a shed at North Eugene High School was intentionally set.

Melinda McLaughlin says Wednesday night’s blaze started near the wooden shed that contained items for track and field. It happened while a basketball game and other activities were going on at the school.

The shed was a total loss, but there were no injuries.

McLaughlin batted down rumors that a student has been arrested, saying a fake arrest was being filmed by students as part of a class project.

Arson investigators are continuing to work the case.
