FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A Fort Worth school is working to repair damages after vandals broke into the building, stole electronics, trashed classrooms and set an American flag on fire.

Como Elementary School officials say teachers will report for work on Monday and students will return on Tuesday. They say three vandals entered through a broken second story window in the school auditorium on Saturday night.

Officials say about 20 rooms were trashed. They say the suspects broke out windows, set off fire extinguishers and overturned desks. It’s unclear what kinds of electronics were stolen.
