Firefighters said they will "salvage what they can" from the remains of an infant school in Essex destroyed by fire.
The John Ray Infant School in Notley Road in Braintree caught fire yesterday (Saturday) afternoon.
Around 50 firefighters were involved in the operation to extinguish the blaze.
Crews reported this morning (Sunday) that the blaze was out, but firefighters remained at the scene.
Notley Road has been reopened to traffic.
Senior Divisional Commander Danny Fearn said: "It is likely that the entire infant school building will be destroyed but we have tried to salvage what we can from the building."
