Two teenage girls charged with ar­son in re­la­tion to a fire at Sa­cred Heart Girls’ Col­lege in Hamil­ton ap­peared in court yes­ter­day. The pair, who are both aged 19 and live in and near Hamil­ton, were granted in­terim name sup­pres­sion when they ap­peared in the Hamil­ton Dis­trict Court. Both were re­manded on bail with­out plea un­til their next ap­pear­ance on De­cem­ber 6. The top two storeys of the school block were com­pletely ablaze by the time fire­fight­ers got to the school on Clyde St, just be­fore mid­night on Fri­day. Fire­works were found at the scene of the fire on Satur­day. No­body was hurt, al­though the blaze gut­ted two sci­ence class­rooms.
