Blaze in derelict school building
ARSONISTS are believed to have started a fire in a derelict Wirral school building last night.
Three crews took more than two and a half hours to tackle the blaze at Park Primary School in Woodstock Road, Wallasey.
Crews from Birkenhead and Upton fire station were called to the scene just after 8pm, following reports that smoke and flames were coming from the single-storey building, which is due to be demolished in two weeks time.
A fire service spokesman told the Globe: "We suspect that this was a deliberate act, due to the fact that there was no power on in the building. The police have been informed.
"With the Easter Holidays approaching we want to warn children that the site could be a danger zone. Buildings under demolition are not play areas."
A police spokesman said: "The building's owner does not want to make a complaint, so we won't be investigating." THE GLOBE
