DENVER (AP) -- Authorities say at least three people who broke into Englewood High School in suburban Denver set several small fires and caused thousands of dollars in damage to a computer room.

Englewood police investigator Kevin Sage tells The Denver Post the fire department received a water pressure alarm at about 1:41 a.m. Sunday, signaling that water was running at the school.

When officers arrived, they found that someone had broken into a computer room and band room and set several small fires.

Video from the school shows three men who appear to be in their 20s damaging the school. Police say more people may have been involved.
