A suspicious fire at a former school building that is now a place of worship is almost out with just a few hot spots left.

Fire and Emergency NZ (Fenz) was called to the former Elston Lea Primary School, which was now the Cook Islands Christian Church, on McQuarrie St in Kingswell, Invercargill, at 1.10pm on Friday.

A Fenz spokesperson said five trucks from Invercargill had attended the blaze and another came from Wallacetown.

The forum community support religious and spiritual tolerance. It condones violence when it comes to peaceful religious activity. Our thoughts to the community concerned.
