Fire crews spend four hours at old Dundee school after blaze breaks out

Damage to the old Baldragon Academy after a fire broke out over the weekend.

More than 40 firefighters have put out a blaze in an old school in Dundee.

Fire crews were called to the scene at the old Baldragon Academy building on Burn Street at around 3.27pm on Saturday.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said that six pumps and a command support unit went to the scene.

Around 43 firefighters were involved in tackling the blaze at the height of the incident.

Firefighters had the blaze under control by early evening and the last appliance left the scene at 7.50pm.

There were no reports of any injuries.

Windows at the derelict building were left smashed with smoke damage to some parts of the building.

Pupils moved into the new Baldragon Academy building nearby in February.
