Two teenagers have been arrested and charged over an arson attack on an Invercargill high school, which caused an estimated $700,000 damage.
Police say two local men, aged 18 and 19, will appear in Invercargill District Court this afternoon facing arson and burglary charges.
Two classrooms were destroyed at James Hargest College in the fire early on January 3.
The two men also face further arson and burglary charges relating to an incident at the school on October 7, when some outbuildings at the school were entered and wooden picnic tables were set alight.
