Bus set ablaze in front of Crown Heights Jewish girls’ school

(JTA) – A school bus outside a Jewish school in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn was set on fire.

The bus went up in flames on Sunday evening in front of the Beth Rivkah School for Girls, a Chabad Lubavitch school in the haredi Orthodox Jewish neighbourhood. There were no injuries.

Police believe the fire was started by a group of teens who have set other buses on fire, News12 reported. A lit pizza box was found inside the burning bus.

Police reportedly will use surveillance video from the school in an effort to identify the suspects.
