MOUNT CALVARY, Wis. (AP) -- A student is accused of stealing money from a Fond du Lac County high school damaged by fire earlier this month.

The 15-year-old student at St. Lawrence Seminary High School is being held at a juvenile detention center. Fond du Lac County Sheriff's Capt. Rick Olig says investigators learned after the March 8 fire that an undisclosed amount of cash was missing. Olig says the boy was found with a cash amount that's consistent with what was taken.

Authorities say the cause of the fire is suspicious. But, Olig says the boy has not been charged with setting it. He tells Action Reporter Media the investigation into the fire continues.

Fire destroyed St. Joseph Hall, the oldest building on the campus of the historic Capuchin seminary high school in Mount Calvary. No one was hurt.
