A fire that torched two Catoosa County, Ga., school buses has been ruled arson, and police are looking for suspects in the crime.

Police said they have investigated school buses being damaged but never a fire lighted inside a vehicle's doors.

"It's very unusual," Catoosa County Sheriff's Office Lt. Chris Lyons said.

The fire was reported Sunday morning at a parking lot near the Jack Mattox Baseball Park in Ringgold, where one bus was set on fire and the flames spread to a nearby bus, officials said.
