Three reserve fire crews have put out a blaze at a school in a Derbyshire village.
The fire was reported at Stonebroom Primary School, near Alfreton, at about 13:00 BST.
The school, which has about 130 pupils, was evacuated while crews dealt with a "rapidly developing fire" in the roof. There are no reports of any injuries.
Some regular firefighters are taking part in public service union strikes across the UK.
It is not yet known what caused the blaze.
Deputy fire officer Terry McDermott said: "Our crews managed to gain access to the roof very quickly using scaffolding, which is around the building at the moment, and deal with the fire."
