TWO teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of arson after a devastating fire at a city nursery.

Several parts of the outside building, summer house, resources and children's toys were destroyed after a suspected deliberate fire at Fairfield Day Nursey last month. 

Two boys, aged 13 and 14, have been arrested on suspicion of causing arson without endangering life.

The 13-year-old has also been arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage.

Smoke poured out onto Ploughmans Close and Gamekeepers Drive as fire crews and police tried to tame the fire that nearly spread into neighbours' gardens.

Homeowners lined the streets in dressing gowns and slippers as they watched in shock while a section of the nursery was gutted on Saturday, October 28.

Police and fire investigators have since confirmed the incident is being treated as arson.

Their arrests follow a recent appeal for information after the fire, and enquiries are ongoing as officers continue to investigate this incident.
