Arson probe after fire at Hatfield school
POLICE are investigating a fire that is believed to have been deliberately caused at a school in Hatfield.
Firefighters were called to Onslow St Audrey’s School in Old Rectory Drive at around 3.15pm on Tuesday last week, following reports of a fire in the IT suite.
The crew used breathing apparatus and a main jet to put out a computer that had caught light.
A spokeswoman for Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “The fire was small and contained in one corner of the room, but there was quite a lot of smoke logging.
“We have carried out a fire investigation, and we believe the cause was deliberate.”
