Fire broke out at a school for the second time in weeks yesterday, in what was described as a "big incident".

Four fire engines were called to City of London Freemen’s School, in Ashtead Park, Ashtead, yesterday, February 10, at 2.30pm. 

An Epsom firefighter said the brigade attended a roof fire in the Old Boys Club House of the school.

He described it as a “relatively big incident”.

A spokesman for the South East Coast Ambulance Service said one ambulance went to the scene to support the fire service, but there were no reported injuries, and it left at 3.15pm. 

On January 3, a huge fire destroyed the swimming pool at the school and firefighters spent five hours at the scene. 

An investigation into the cause of the January fire is ongoing and its cause is as yet unknown.
