WALKERSVILLE, Md. - A fire in a recycling bin at Walkersville High School Wednesday afternoon was deliberately set, according to the Maryland State Fire Marshal's office.

A teacher walking by a classroom at 3:45 p.m., just after school was dismissed, spotted the fire.

The teacher carried the bin outside, preventing the fire from spreading, fire marshals said.

The bin contained discarded newspapers, fire marshals said. Damage, confined to the bin, was set at $30.
