The cars were reportedly about to be scrapped for metal on Friday.

KASER - Authorities are investigating after two cars were set on fire at the Yeshiva of Spring Valley boys school in Kaser.

Investigators say the incident happened at around 9:30 p.m. Thursday in the school's parking lot. They say the unregistered vehicles, owned by the school, were old and used only for snow plowing. They were reportedly about to be scrapped for metal on Friday.

Police say the incident does not appear to be a hate crime, since no anti-Semitic symbols or other evidence was left behind.

They are still treating the case seriously, however, and say they will charge whoever is responsible with a felony.
