CHILDREN have been evacuated from Wombwell High School after a fire broke out in one of the classrooms.

Five fire engines sped to the school after a fire was called in at 1.10pm today (Monday, March 12.) Children were evacuated for their own safety.

A spokesman for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said the fire had now been extinguished and that there was no known injuries.

A spokesman said: "Fire crews wearing breathing apparatus located the fire in a first-floor classroom, believed to be an IT suite. The fire was quickly extinguished using a hose reel, and no-one was injured.

"The classroom and roof void area suffered fire and smoke damage. The cause of the fire is still under investigation."

I would not be surprised if it was a kid messing with a lighter, or a cig or something. In an IT suite the only reason a pc would explode would be water or electrical fault causing it to explode but that would have caused injuries if there was a class in.

It was just after dinner so there wouldn't have been many people in. I've heard rumours of it being a cig.

Yeah all the Y10 PE course work went up in flames and SP1 is staying closed and SP2 is suppose to reopen after Easter. I was ment to have PE theory in the classroom that was on fire. It was a good thing I was late going to PE or I have a feeling I'd have been suffering from smoke inhalation, maybe even worse!
Luckily no one was hurt in the fire!!!
