Fire crews put out blaze at univer­sity

The Scotsman - - Around Scotland -

More than 20 fire­fight­ers have ex­tin­guished a blaze in a univer­sity build­ing.

Crews were called to the scene on North Haugh in St Andrews, Fife, at around 2:08am yes­ter­day.

Four fire en­gines and a high reach ap­pli­ance were used to tackle the blaze in a me­chan­i­cal ex­trac­tion sys­tem.

The fire in the four-storey build­ing, thought to be a sci­ence block, was ex­tin­guished by 5:39am.

The Univer­sity of St Andrews de­scribed it as a “small” fire on the roof of the Pur­die Build­ing, which houses the School of Chem­istry.
