LAKEFIELD-Police, fire and ambulance are on the scene of an alleged fire at the former Lakefield District Secondary School, now a Public School.

The fire broke out at approximately 7pm when asphalt shingles allegedly caught on fire in the area where an unused wing of the school is being torn down.

Lakefield District Secondary School was closed at the end of the 2015-2016 school year due to declining enrolment although the building continued to house the intermediate grades for another year.

A new Kindergarten to grade 8 public school was to open in September but was delayed.

Theres no word on damages or injuries. Witnesses say traffic is slow in the area.

More to come….
