Fires at Hastings BHS

2:26 pm on 26 July 2009

Two fires were lit at Hastings Boys High School overnight.

Police say one was lit in the canteen area and another in a rubbish skip.

They were discovered by the school caretaker just before 1am on Sunday.

The Fire Service says the fires could have caused a lot of damage if they had not been discovered early. The extent of the damage is not yet known.

Investigations have begun and a guard is at the school.
