Police have arrested three young people in connection with the fire that gutted the Ecole des Ranches in Vernier over the summer.

On  Monday a  16-year-old was arrested for the same reason.

He’d been spotted by municipal police while at the scene of another blaze.

Over the last few weeks, Vernier has suffered a series of fires – mainly set in garbage bins. 

The cladding on the school burnt so fiercely, fire fighters said it was the worst they’d ever attended.
