Fire crews called out to primary school

Thu, 07 Sep 2017

Fire crews were called to one of the Island's primary schools on the first day of the new academic year.

A team from Peel Fire Station was sent to Foxdale School following reports of a smell of burning at around 4.45pm.

Officers used a thermal image camera to find the cause of the smell to be an overheated low voltage transformer in a ceiling void.

Staff from the Department of Education and Children were able to isolate the equipment while smoke logging was minimal.

Crews spent around 40 minutes at the scene.
