Haverhill: School Fire 'Suspicious'
A fire that destroyed a former school in Haverhill is being treated as suspicious by Police.
Around 50 firefighters were called to tackle flames at the derelict Castle Middle School in School Lane on Sunday night.
The area around the building was cordoned off and 10 fire crews were called to the scene.
There were also concerns about some gas canisters inside the school.
Those living nearby were asked to stay indoors with their windows shut but didn't need to be evacuated.
Nobody was inside the buildings during the fire.
According to Suffolk Police, the building is not yet safe enough for a full investigation, however initial investigations have led officers to believe it was started on purpose.
A Suffolk Police spokesperson said: "Police are appealing for anyone who has information about how the fire was started or who may have started to contact police immediately on 101.
Officers are also urging members of the public to stay away from the site as it is unsafe and anyone entering would be putting themselves at risk."
