BOROUGH PARK - Due to the actions of two men, officials say a Jewish school in Borough Park was saved after a suspected arson fire had been started.

Solomon Friedlander, the owner of a grocery store across the street, says his son noticed the fire at the podium within the synagogue and was able to extinguish it.

Friedlander's son was also helped by a stranger who had been working on his flat tire nearby.

City Councilman David Greenfield says the fire department and police do not believe the fire was a bias incident.
