A fire at a former school in Cliftonville is being treated as suspected arson.
Kent Police has confirmed it is investigating after emergency services were called to the fire in the former Laleham Gap school grounds in Northdown Park Road, at 1.39am today (June 27).
The fire was in a disused portacabin on school grounds which was completely destroyed. The blaze had also spread, causing further damage to two further portacabins and an area of grass.
Fire crews wore breathing apparatus and used three main jets and a cold cut firefighting system to extinguish the blaze.
The incident was reduced to two fire engines just before 3am. They spent a further hour damping down and left the scene around 4.15am.
A Kent Police spokesman said: “At this stage the cause of the fire is being treated as suspicious and enquiries are ongoing.”
