Six school districts in the Greater Olean region have taken security measures following a suspicious fire in Allegany County. 

At 12:45 a.m., New York State Police responded to a structure fire at 8472 Courtney Hollow Road in the town of Clarksville and found two bodies. Shortly after 9 a.m., police said they are investigating a double-homicide and arson and said they are searching for a red 2003 Chevy Blazer operated by William J. Larson, 17. He is considered "armed and dangerous" according to the release. 

As a result, the Cuba-Rushford, Portville, Bolivar-Richburg and Friendship school districts announced early Thursday that the schools are closed, while Hinsdale and Olean announced that school buildings are on a "lockout," meaning that all who need to enter the building must do so through one point of entry and must be buzzed in.
