Crews from Andover were called to tackle a blaze at a primary school across the border in Wiltshire last night.

Several fire crews were scrambled to Woodborough School near Pewsey after a fire broke out at around 6.40pm.

Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service says it received several reports of smoke coming from a building and when the first fire crews arrived more firefighting resources were requested at the scene.

A spokesperson for the fire service said: "Fire Control took the first of several calls reporting smoke issuing from a building in Woodborough, Pewsey. Crews from Pewsey, Devizes and Marlborough were initially mobilised.

"The first crew booked in attendance and confirmed smoke issuing and additional resources were requested.

"Due to the fire affecting a neighbouring property a further request for assistance was received a short while after which resulted in crews from Amesbury, Westbury, Andover and Chippenham being mobilised along with a water carrier from Andover.

"Hose reel jets and main jets have been used to extinguish the fire with the aerial ladder platform being used to strip roof tiles to check for fire spread and thermal imaging cameras used to check for hot spots. Aquavacs have also been used to assist with salvage operations in areas of the building not affected by fire."

DWFRS added that an investigation was underway but they believe the cause to be accidental.
