A FIRE has broken out at a school.
A car parked in Winterhill School's car park caught fire around 10.20am today (Tuesday).
A crew from Elm station attended the blaze at the High Street school for around 30 minutes.
Eye-witness Mick Marshall said: “I was walking my dog up Little Common Lane in Kimberworth when I heard the school fire alarm.
“I thought it was unusual, then a loud boom followed.
“I thought a car may have crashed but then I saw smoke and flames coming out of the school.
“The fire brigade came about three minutes later – the school's evacuation onto the adjoining tennis courts worked well and the fire brigade’s response was impressive.”
A South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue spokeswoman said the fire was believed to be accidental.
The school has been contacted for a comment.
