Arson in Khandallah: rubbish bin fire spreads to school building

News from NZ Police
Rubbish bins were set alight early yesterday morning at Cashmere Avenue School on Cashmere Avenue and Saint Benedicts School on Nicholson Road in Khandallah.

The arson at Cashmere Avenue School had potential for the entire school to be destroyed as one of the buildings caught alight and it was only the quick response by a neighbour that left the building suffering moderate damage.

This is concerning behaviour exhibited by an individual(s) and the District Crime Squad would like any information from the public as to the identity of the person(s) who have caused this damage, or anyone acting suspiciously in the area overnight on Saturday and the early hours of Sunday morning.

If you are able to assist, please call the District Crime Squad on (04) 381-2077.
