Incident name: Kambrya College fire
Brigades: Beaconsfield, Berwick, Dandenong, Frankston, Hallam, Narre Warren
Six brigades were called out to Kambrya College just before 10:00pm.
The fire started in the portables - the science block - at the back of the school and took an hour to be brought under control. Of the six portables, four were completely destroyed, while firefighters managed to save the other two.
Both Hallam and Dandenong hazmat (hazardous materials) units attended because of concerns about chemicals in the portable classrooms. Crews required lighting setups throughout the night.
A stop was put on the fire after nearly two hours at around 11:30pm.
Fire investigators and Victoria Police are examining the cause of the fire.
