Crews from Kingswood, Hicks Gate, Temple, Bedminster, Patchway, Avonmouth, Southmead, Nailsea, Weston, Bath, and Thornbury were mobilised at 00:30hrs to reports of a fire at a school on Tower Road, Warmley.

On arrival, firefighters found a large fire across parts of the building spanning across four teaching blocks ranging from one to three floors high.

At its height, firefighters used six breathing apparatus for safety, and four 45mm jets to extinguish the fire. The turntable ladder was also used to help firefighters tackle the fire from height.

Crews also used specialist equipment such as the High Volume Pump to ensure an adequate water supply was delivered to the scene.

Police crews are also in attendance.

One appliance from Kingswood remains on the scene, with crews continuing to dampen down.

Following a fire investigation, the cause has been found to be deliberate ignition.
