Fire at old school in Endeavour Hills
CFA crews attended a fire at an abandoned secondary school building in Endeavour Hills just before midnight last night.
Firefighters were called to the former Endeavour Hills Secondary College in Amalfi Drive where a building, around 30 x 60 metres, was fully alight.
Operations Officer Paul Carrigg said the fire took about an hour to bring under control.
“Firefighters had some difficulty getting water so they called for specialised hoses and numerous pumping appliances for support, which made a huge difference to how quickly we were able to bring the fire under control.
“The building was detached to the other parts of the school, so the fire was contained to one building.”
Brigades from Dandenong, Hallam, Casey, Hampton Park, Narre Warren, Frankston and Scoresby attended.
It took firefighters around three hours to fully extinguish the fire.
The fire will be investigated by CFA and police.
