A bathroom at Thunder Basin High School that was torched Oct. 1 is projected to cost the Campbell County School District at least $40,000 to repair.

Derek Paul, a 17-year-old student, faces a first-degree arson charge for allegedly starting the fire. At his initial court appearance last week, retired Circuit Court Judge William S. Edwards set Paul’s bond at $25,000, cash only.
