Authorities say the three students planned to set fire to a girls bathroom on the second floor of the school so that “the rude people would die in the fire.”

One student says that one of the suspects threatened to set her on fire if she told on them.

A juvenile court judge has sent the three students to juvenile detention for 21 days.
