Darul Uloom School fire: 'Intruders started fire'
An Islamic school in south east London has said a fire on the premises was started by intruders.
About 128 pupils and staff were evacuated from Darul Uloom School, in Foxbury Avenue, Chislehurst, on Saturday.
Firefighters were called to the scene at 23:43 BST. Two men were treated for the effects of breathing in smoke.
A school spokesperson said he was "deeply saddened" and the building had previously been targeted by vandals.
He added the intruders had been caught on the school's security cameras.
"We are part of the British community and are deeply saddened by the events that have taken place last night," Sayed Mahmood, school spokesman said.
"We urge the community to stay firm and united in bringing the people responsible to justice."( Collapse )SourceStarting a fire at a school... time of day doesn't matter, it's a boarding school, children will have been in the school! I'm really glad the fire could be put out before it turned into a blaze.
