LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Arson investigators believe it was a stack of compressed styrofoam  that caught fire in South Louisville.

Fire crews responded to the blaze around 9:30 p.m. Friday. It was near Lassiter Middle School on Candleworth Drive. The fire burnt for more than two hours while firefighters tried to get the blaze under control.

The styrofoam was supposed to be used for rebuilding the roof of the school. The lost building materials will cost the school several thousand dollars.
