Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) - A Twin Falls boy could possibly be in trouble for the fire at Perrine Elementary school last week. At this time, the fire appears to be accidental.
That's according to Twin Falls city officials.
They say the boy, whose name hasn't been released, was a student at the school.
City spokesman Josh Palmer says authorities are taking this incident seriously since there were students and teachers in the building when the fire started last Thursday morning.
Students have since returned to the classrooms in the building.
Palmer says the boy confessed to the incident, and was released to his parents.
