Suspected arson as Aargau school burns to ground
Police suspect arson after a school in canton Aargau was destroyed by fire.
The alarm was raised at 2.30am on Tuesday. Despite efforts by firefighters from across the canton, the school in Holderbank burnt to the ground.
The building was nearly 100 years old and was listed as historically important.
It was the only school in the village – and there were already concerns over lack of places for local children.
Investigations are continuing.
