A massive fire breaks out at a primary school.
A massive blaze at a primary school in Ormskirk drew the attention of six fire engines.
At 7.30 p.m. on Thursday, June 17, Lancashire Fire and Rescue were called to reports of a fire at Asmall Primary School on Tennyson Drive in Ormskirk.
According to LancsLive, photos and videos posted on social media show large plumes of heavy black smoke and flames rising from the school grounds.
People can’t seem to agree on what to do about a “traumatized” vegetarian McDonald’s customer.
Five Lancashire firefighters, one Merseyside crew, and a command support unit from Blackburn were on hand to put out the fire, which had spread to three rooms.
Before seeing the ‘devastating’ fire, an eyewitness said she heard a ‘big blast.’
“Six fire teams, including those from Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service, are addressing a fire at a commercial property on Tennyson Drive in Ormskirk,” a representative for the fire service said.
“When firefighters arrived on the site, the building was well ablaze, and workers are utilizing breathing apparatus and hose reels to put the fire out.”
At 9 p.m., firefighters reported the fire was ‘under control,’ with teams remaining on the scene to ‘damp down’ and verify there were no hidden flames that could spread within the structure.
Nobody was in the building when the fire started, according to Councillor Adam Yates.
“Horrible news about the fire at Asmall Primary School and Nursery this evening,” he said.
“Now that everything is under control, we’ll have to wait to discover what caused it and how much damage there is.”
“Fortunately, no one was inside at the time.”
The cause of the fire is being investigated by Lancashire Fire and Rescue.
