Two teenagers accused of an arson attack on James Hargest College can now be named.

Name suppression was lifted this morning for Campbell Leaf, 19, and Duncan Robert Roderick McRae, 18, when they appeared before Judge Raoul Neave in Invercargill District Court.

Both are facing two charges of arson and two of burglary and Leaf also faces three charges of theft.

The pair were remanded on bail without plea until March 13 for a post-committal conference.

The fire, during the early hours of January 3, destroyed six classrooms undergoing a $1.5 million renovation in the school's C Block resulting in $700,000 of damage.
