Huge Fire At Wakefield School
Around 50 firefighters are fighting a fire at Freeston Academy, Normanton on GCSE results day.
West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said it had sent ten appliances, after being called out around 9am, but confirmed no-one had been hurt.
A spokeswoman said:
"The fire at The Freeston Academy is currently surrounded by firefighters and under control. Ten pumps remain at the scene, as well as the major salvage unit.
Please note that, contrary to earlier reports that half the school is involved in fire, we can confirm that just 10% of the school is involved.
Firefighters contained the fire to a two-storey annexe which contains IT classrooms on the first floor and a study area on the ground floor. Around 50% of this small annexe has been involved in fire.
Acting school principal, Mike Tarr, said students have collected their GCSE results as normal from Normanton Sports Centre, which is on the school site. He would like to reassure the public that everyone is safe."
Before the blaze, the school tweeted a message saying: "Good luck everyone!''
