Fire Attempted to Destroy Forks Hight School Sign

Forks High School FountainForks Forum has an article talking about what happened at the Forks High School early Monday morning. There was an attempt to burn down the Forks High School sign, but a planter box located approx. 20 feet from the Forks High School sign.

An suspect is being sought in an attempt to burn the landmark wooden Forks Spartan sign that stands in front of the circa 1925 brick Forks High School building. A section of a planter box located about 20 feet from the sign was burned.

The wooden sign which fronts Spartan Ave. is a popular photo op stop for visiting Twilight fans. Tens of thousands of the fans have had their photo taken in front of the sign.

On Monday morning, Forks Police Department Deputy Chief of Police Lloyd Lee reported to the Forks Forum that: “Early this morning around 0145 hours the on duty officer, Michael Rowley was flagged down in the area of the school and was told about a bench in front of the high school was on fire. The responding officer put the fire out with the fire extinguisher he carries in his vehicle.
 
“After investigating we found not only was the bench on fire, but the arsonist tried to burn down the Forks High School sign. A one foot in diameter charred area was found behind the sign. Also found was a broken window on the north side of the high school.”

The Twilight Saga uses Forks High School as The Cullens and Bella’s High School in Forks WA. IF the sign was attempted to burn down because of the Twilight Saga, then thats pretty sad that they had to vandalize the High School. (I think it was some Harry Potter fans jk hahaha)
