PARCHMENT, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – Police in Parchment are looking for suspects after a fire beneath the bleachers at the high school. It happened Wednesday shortly after 9:00 pm. When firefighters arrived they found a fire burning beneath the home side bleachers. Some old high jump and pole vault mats had been set on fire.
