Part of the basement of a “school” in Stamford Hill was damaged by fire this afternoon.
The London Fire Brigade would not say which “school” was affected, but released a statement to say the firefighters were called to Amhurst Park just after 1.30pm on September 15.
Twenty five firefighters using four engines - from Stoke Newington, Tottenham, Holloway and Homerton fire stations - attended the scene.
They had the blaze under control within an hour.
There were no reports of any injuries, as 67 children and 16 adults left the building before the Brigade arrived.
Station commander Sami Goldbrom said: “The fire was confined to the basement below the school and crews are continuing to work to extract the smoke which remains.
“Thankfully, everyone was out of the building before the Brigade arrived and the school children have now been sent home.”
