Vacant school building in Battle Creek is set on fire again



Battle Creek Police question two people about their potential involvement in a weekend crime. They are being held in connection with another fire at the former Southwestern Jr High School, along South Washington.

The school building was burnt down in April. The damage was minimal.
City investigators say there is no doubt the fire was deliberately started.

The vacant building was set on fire again yesterday – late afternoon.
Still minor damage.

But this time, the city police had enough information to bring two people to the department to urge them to get information. The Battle Creek Fire Marshal’s Office continues its
work to determine how the fire started.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To learn more about how the price of gasoline has changed over the years, Stacker has calculated the figures for the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the past 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released April 2020), we analyzed the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline from 1976 to 2020 as well as the Consumer Price Index (CPI ) for regular unleaded gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gasoline over time and rediscover how bad a gallon was when you first started driving.
