Police are investigating the cause of the fire at the boarding school

When we first heard of the fire last night before news broke out this morning, we were told it was an edl attack, but most incidents are now not being linked to them for fear of reprisal. Wallahuallam

Four arson arrests over Islamic Darul Uloom School fire

Four teenagers have been arrested after a fire at an Islamic boarding school in south-east London.

About 128 pupils and staff were evacuated from Darul Uloom School in Foxbury Avenue, Chislehurst, on Saturday.

Two 17-year-olds and two 18-year-olds were arrested on suspicion of arson on Sunday, the Metropolitan police said.

Police said the fire caused minor damage and two people were treated for the effects of smoke inhalation.


The teenagers are in custody at a south London police station.

Commander Simon Letchford told BBC London: "It's only by luck that the fire attack didn't prove to be fatal.

"Fortunately [it] was identified very quickly."

A police spokesman said officers were asking members of the public to remain calm and not to speculate as to the cause of the fire.

He added: "There is an increased police presence around potentially vulnerable locations in the borough of Bromley and across London."
