Felsted: School building blaze

A HUGE fire has taken hold of a private school in Essex.

Nine fire appliances were called to Felsted School near Dunmow at 7pm to reports of a fire in a girl’s boarding house.

The officer in charge says 50% of the roof is on fire and fire fighters have had to stand back because the building is unstable.

The building was empty and no people are missing.
