PIEDMONT, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Small fires and a subsequent chase near Woodmont High School prompted a lockdown Wednesday afternoon.

Greenville County Master Deputy Laura Campbell said deputies were called to the intersection of West Georgia and Reedy Fork roads about a fire. She said that when deputies arrived a couple of children ran away. She said deputies caught up with one of them.

Campbell said investigators are trying to determine if the children, who were not students at the school, were responsible for the fires.

Oby Lyles, spokesman for Greenville County Schools, was locked down at 1:10 p.m. He said the lockdown was lifted about 20 minutes later. He said the chase was the reason for the lockdown.
