Authorities say a houseparent at a Pennsylvania school has been charged with inappropriately touching an 11-year-old girl.

WHTM-TV first reported 34-year old Randy Fies was charged last week with corrupting minors.

Fies had been a houseparent at the Milton Hershey School, located about 13 miles east of Harrisburg. The school says he has been fired.

The school says in a statement it contacted authorities immediately after becoming aware of the allegation and is cooperating with law enforcement.
