A nursery school in Skövde was ravaged by fire on Sunday morning. By the time the emergency services arrived at Karstorps pre-school, the blaze had already consumed most of the building.

Three weeks ago another pre-school in the area was destroyed by fire.

Police quickly suspected that an arsonist was responsible for the first blaze, but nobody has been arrested.

There are now suggestions that the fire at Karstorp school was also arson, reported Swedish Radio Skaraborg.
