POLICE are treating as arson the fire at the Fiji College of Theology and Evangelism in Buabua, Lautoka, last week.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the cause of alleged arson in the 150- square metre carpentry and joinery vocational centre would only be determined after a thorough investigation.

"Whilst police are treating the fire as arson as investigations continue, the estimated cost of damage to the house is $120,000.

"The cost of household items and other properties including a four-wheel-drive vehicle total $250,000."

The school was established in 1974 and has a roll of about 800 students.

The National Fire Authority has also started its investigation.
