Twenty firefighters battled with a blaze at a disused school in Willenhall today.
Flames swept the single-storey brick-built building at the former Fibbersley Park School in Pinson Road and were spotted by a member of the public at around 3.40am.
Crews from Bilston, Willenhall and Fallings Park fire stations were joined by the hydraulic platform based at Walsall as they fought to control the blaze.
The platform was used to make as assessment of the scene and help the firefighters pinpoint their efforts.
They used three main jets, two hose reels and breathing apparatus and soon reported that good progress was being made to put out the flames.
Investigations to establish the cause were set to start once the fire had been put out.
