Sus­pi­cious fire at school

Taranaki Daily News - - National News -

A fire that de­stroyed two re­cently re­fur­bished class­rooms at a Can­ter­bury pri­mary school has been deemed sus­pi­cious. Fire­fight­ers were called to Ka­iapoi North School, north of Christchurch, about 1.45am yes­ter­day. The blaze gut­ted two class­rooms and a cloak­room be­tween them. Ka­iapoi North School prin­ci­pal Ja­son Miles said the class­rooms were re­fur­bished at the end of last year as part of a school up­grade. ‘‘We’re dev­as­tated, ab­so­lutely dev­as­tated, for the chil­dren in there, the teach­ers and the com­mu­nity,’’ Miles said. The school was closed yes­ter­day but was aim­ing to re­open to­day.
