But when fire fighters arrived they found that the cause was not smoke but steam and thankfully stood down after doing their checks.

A fire crew from Minsterley was scrambled to the primary school at Worthen at 5.26am on Thursday .

A spokesperson for Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service said crews used a thermal camera to carry out a thorough search.

"This incident was a false alarm caused by steam," said the spokesperson. The incident was declared over by 6.04am.
