‘Suspicious’ fire at Bury St Edmunds County Upper School

Two teenagers have been arrested by police after a ‘suspicious’ fire at County Upper School, in Bury St Edmunds, last night.

Firecrews were called to the fire in an office at the Beetons Way school at about about 7.30pm.

Police have bailed a 13-year-old from Bury St Edmunds and a 15-year-old, also from Bury, on suspicion of arson. They must report to Bury Police Investigation Centre on February 8.

The school was open as normal this morning and headteacher Vicky Neale said it had been a very small fire in a student support office and had not affected the normal running of the school at all.
