Police say a 10th grader at Holly High School confessed to setting fires inside the school on Thursday.
The school was evacuated when two fires were found burning on the second floor in garbage and recycling bins in the hallway.
An investigation of the area showed the two fires had been intentionally set with matches and a third fire in another garbage bin had been lit but had burned out on its own.
The fires were extinguished, no one was injured and property damage was limited to the garbage and recycling bins.
Surveillance video of the high school hallways was retrieved and a student could be seen lighting the fires.
A still image of the suspect was then sent electronically to school staff and within several minutes the suspect, a sophomore at the school, was identified, located and taken into custody.
The suspect is currently being held in Children's Village of Oakland County pending a hearing in probate court.
The minor could face three counts of Arson, which is a 10-year felony charge.
