They found the stage destroyed and nearby turf damaged by a fire.

FOX40 has learned the stage was brand new, and cost about $20,000. The field itself is relatively new, it was installed last summer.

Officials are investigating and have not said what caused the fire.

Graduation will go on as planned Friday night. School officials say a temporary stage will be brought in, and artificial grass will be laid out over the burned areas of the field.
