Fire in portable classroom at Noel Booth Elementary

Langley RCMP are investigating what could be the second arson fire at Noel Booth Elementary in less than two months.

Around 1:30 a.m on Saturday morning, a fire broke out in a portable classroom at Noel Booth Elementary.

The Brookswood school was hit with a similar fire in a portable on March 4. That fire was part of an arson wave in the area.

Langley Township fire department is investigating the latest blaze. Damage to the portable classroom was extensive.

Down the street, the Brookswood Baptist Church had been hit with three arson fires and anti-religion graffiti. Also, Brookswood has been hit with loads of graffiti, with one tagger leaving his or her tag all over the area.

The tagging has become such a problem, the Brookswood Merchant Association held a meeting last week.
