FIREFIGHTERS rushed to tackle a ‘deliberate’ fire at a disused school last night, Friday.

Crews were called to the incident on Dingle Lane in Winsford at around 7.30pm.

One fire engine from Winsford attended and the team extinguished a small fire on the second floor of the disused premises.

A Cheshire Fire and Rescue spokesperson said: “The fire is believed to have been started deliberately and police were called.

“Anyone with information should call 101.”
