Vacaville police arrested a man Sunday on suspicion of starting a fire at Vacaville High School on Thursday and two others on his property near the high school over the weekend. Lawrence Dean Ramos, 45, was booked into Solano County Jail on three counts of arson. His bail is $80,000. The fire at the high school, located at 100 Monte Vista Ave., burned shortly after midnight Thursday morning and damaged a portable classroom used for English classes at the west end of the campus. The fire started when someone threw something through a window, school principal Ed Santopadre said. On Saturday, police and firefighters responded to a suspicious fire near a fence on the north side of a home in the 200 block of Monte Vista Avenue at about 11 a.m., Sgt. Jeff King said. The cause was undetermined. A third fire, in a carport on the southeast side of the same property, was reported at 12:32 a.m. Sunday, King said. The blaze was extinguished quickly and caused only minor damage. Police detectives suspected the blazes were related and they contacted Ramos, who lived on the property, King said. He was arrested and booked into jail on Sunday afternoon.

  • Ramos didn’t try to kill his mom. I worked witb him and I can tell you how much it hurt him that his father dies and how ill his mother is. So knock off the &^%$. I’m not defending him about the fire…he was wrong there. But stop trying to spread &^%$ you know nothing about..

  • To be honest, I think he was trying to kill his mother to collect insurance money since that house with the port is where he and she lives. He hated the high school kids too, and I don’t think he hates little kids tho, according to a co-worker of his at Westfield mall. Apperantly Deans computer was investigates for child pornography in the pass, but that was just a rumor I heard.

  • Any clues to why lawrence dean ramos set this fire is he “Anti-Public Education”? It seems the nuts come out during Economic Disasters.
