A small fire at a San Jose high school Sunday evening was deliberately set, according to fire officials.

The fire at Independence High School at 1776 Educational Park Drive was reported around 6:45 p.m., when a witness saw flames, according to San Jose Fire Capt. Rob Brown.

Firefighters found that a side door on a theater building had been set on fire, melting the plexiglass window and damaging siding on the building.

The fire had been put out by a sprinkler by the time firefighters arrived on scene.

An arson investigator has determined the fire was deliberately set. There were no injuries due to the fire, Brown said.
