Crews from Kingswood, Hicks Gate, Temple, Bedminster, Patchway, Avonmouth, Southmead, Nailsea, Weston, Bath, and Thornbury were called to Tower Road, Warmley at 12.30am.

The fire is believed to have occurred at The Grange School, which closed in 2016. The nearby Digitech Studio School has announced it is closed today.

At its height, firefighters used six breathing apparatus for safety, and four 45mm jets to extinguish the fire. The turntable ladder was also used to help firefighters tackle the fire from height.

Crews also used specialist equipment such as the High Volume Pump to ensure an adequate water supply was delivered to the scene.

Four appliances remain on scene including one turntable ladder, with crews continuing to dampen down.

Police crews were also in attendance and enquiries are ongoing. The cause is currently unknown, with a fire investigation due to take place.
