BROOKLYN - Class is back in session for students at an East Flatbush Jewish preschool after a fire destroyed the building.

The Educational Institute of Oholei Torah on East 53rd Street was heavily damaged after an electrical fire yesterday. According to the school's director, flames destroyed books and other school supplies, but they're doing their best to keep up with a normal routine.

The 100 students will be taught out of another building in Crown Heights until repairs are complete. Teachers say they hope they can return to their building soon.
