A fire at a childcare centre yesterday which started while children were still inside may have been deliberately lit.
Smoke was coming from the building when firefighters were called to the Toowoomba, Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre at Rudd Street in Drayton about 1:30pm.
Forty-one children and nine staff were evacuated from the building, reports ABC news.
Firefighters found a fire in a store room and quickly extinguished it.
No-one was injured but police said it appeared a second fire had been extinguished at the other end of the building before emergency services arrived “suggesting it may have been deliberately lit”.
A crime scene has been established at the centre and forensic officers are investigating.
