Arson suspected as pre-school burns down

A pre-school in southern Stockholm was burnt to the ground overnight, Swedish police suspect arson.

The fire started just after midnight and was so intense that fire officers decided not to try to douse the flames when they arrived at the scene.

"We have not been able to get in and put the fire out, because there was a risk that the roof would collapse", Magnus Bengtsson from the Stockholm Fire Service told news agency TT.

However, police say they are no witnesses, and no-one has yet been arrested.
