A FIRE which destroyed an outbuilding at Crookham Court School yesterday evening (Sun) was a suspected arson.

Two fire engines from Newbury Fire Station were called at 6pm, to a portable building which was well alight at the school site, in Crookham Hill.

The derelict portable building was 50 per cent alight on arrival, according to firefighters at the scene.

It was initially thought the portable building contained LPG cylinders, but this possibility was later ruled out.

Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus extinguished the fire using two main jets.

The cause was recorded as suspicious by the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS).
