Police in the London area reportedly are investigating a suspected arson attack at a Jewish primary school.

The fire at the Talmud Torah Toldos Yakov Yoser school in Hackney, a northeastern London borough, occurred on the night of Sept. 28 and did not result in any injuries, The Jewish Chronicle reported.

The paper quoted Nick Bull, an agent of the Violent Crime unit in Shoreditch, as saying that “an investigator at the London Fire Brigade confirmed that no accelerant was used but believes that the fire was started on purpose, because two separate fires in two separate rooms were started at the same time.”
