Firefighters were called to a suspected arson attack at a derelict building which used to be part of the Bilston Community College.
Around 20 firefighters from Bilston, Willenhall, Bloxwich, Tettenhall and Fallings Park attended the incident just after midnight on Monday 7th October.
The fire affected around a third of all three floors within the building. As well as the basement and the roof.
A spokesman from West Midlands Fire Service stated;
“The fire is believed to be started deliberately and is being treated as suspected arson”
Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident within the Midlands. For example, in August 2019, a former commercial unit in Dudley was targeted by suspected arsonists. Read the full story here.
