Station Manager Paul Coates, the officer in charge, said: "The fire started on the roof of the L-shaped building but with some aggressive firefighting we managed to control and contain the spread of the flames.

"Much of the building has been saved and the crews deserve a lot of credit for their quick and effective actions."

Around half the building was damaged in the fire, with smoke damage throughout.

Fire investigation officers will attend the scene this morning to try to work out the cause of the blaze.
