MORE than a dozen firefighters battled a blaze at an Aberdeen school.
The fire broke out at Cordyce School in Dyce at around 10.25am, and 13 firefighters tackled the flames for an hour.
A Scottish Fire and Rescue spokeswoman confirmed: “It was in a building of one floor and the fire was in the kitchen area.”
Three appliances were deployed to the scene, on Riverview Drive, from Dyce, North Anderson Drive and Central stations.
An Aberdeen City Council spokeswoman said: “We can confirm that the fire service was called to Cordyce School this morning to attend to a fire in the kitchen area of one of the school’s three units.
“The kitchen area in the unit was badly damaged but no other part of the unit was affected. The unit was evacuated at the time but pupils have now returned to their classes in another part of the school. No one was injured.”
