A school building in Leighton Buzzard has been damaged after a fire broke out at a nearby skip.
Firefighters were called to the Brooklands School yesterday afternoon (20 October) after the blaze destroyed the contents of an industrial skip, containing roofing materials, and caused damage to the exterior of the building.
The school roof was being renovated. Contractors were removing materials - including felt and insulation - using blowtorches and putting them into the skip.
The fire service say it's possible that some of the materials could have been alight or hot - which then could have ignited the rest of the contents of the skip.
Workmen tried to tackle the fire before fire crews arrived. One of them suffered minor burns to his arm, and was treated at the scene.
The fire has been extinguished.
“The school activated the fire alarm and a full evacuation safely took place and the pupils were relocated to nearby Leedon Lower School.
When the crews arrived six minutes later the skip was well alight and had spread to the fascia of the building melting the UPVC window frames and causing heat damage to the exterior.”

A murder investigation was launched after a man's body was found in a bin on Essex Close Monday (17 October).
Officers are now investigating whether his death is linked to the death of a woman who was body was found at a nearby home on 10 October.
The woman’s death is still being treated as unexplained.
Police investigating a double murder in Luton believe the victims were killed at the same time, even though the bodies were found a week apart.
Today, police also revealed they'd found a child at a property when the body of a woman was discovered more than a week ago.
The child's now in care. A week later, a man's body was found in a nearby bin.
