ST DAY nursery children were evacuated this morning after a fire broke out in the school building.

Firefighters from Redruth and Truro were called to Sunny Days Nursery at Old School Hill at 10am.

On arrival crews found a cooker in the ground floor kitchen alight.

According to Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service a number of plastic boxes had been accidentally left on the stove.

Fireman Rob Hosking from Redruth station explained: "There was a small fire in a cooker but because it is a wooden building we also searched for hotspots to make sure the fire had not spread in the building.

"The children were evacuated to a neighbouring school where they will remain until the condition of the nursery is assessed.

"Although it was heavily smoke logged the fire only caused minor damage to the building."
