At least 55 firefighters are tackling a blaze at a derelict primary school in Halesowen, says West Midlands Fire Service.
Multiple calls were made to the operating room as the fire spread through the main hall and into the roof of the building on Holt Road in Halesowen/Blackheath.
Due to the amount of calls coming in, the fire service increased the number of fighters in attendance and the fire is now believed to be under control.
