NORTH HOLLYWOOD – A 15-year-old student from Ulysses S. Grant High School is accused of lighting two fires in trash bins at Madison Middle School, his former school, fire and school officials said this morning. The first fire occurred sometime between 1 and 6:30 p.m. in a trash can near the plant management office at the school in the 13000 block of Hart Street, said Los Angeles Unified School District Police Deputy Chief Nancy Ramirez. There were no witnesses, but apparently there was evidence of fresh tagging, Ramirez said. The second fire was reported later in a metal trash bin near the playing fields, Ramirez said. The two fires caused some $8,000 in damages. The student, who was not identified because he is a minor, is a former student at Madison, said Carey Steiner, a Los Angeles city Fire Department arson investigator. He was arrested without incident and was being held at the Sylmar Juvenile Hall on an arson charge, officials said.
