Pictures shared by Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service show the extent of damage to the building in Huthwaite.
On Monday 29 May in the afternoon, an appliance from Ashfield Fire Station, one from Mansfield and one from Alfreton responded to a building fire in Huthwaite.
Incident commander Watch Manager Mills said: “It took a considerable effort and extensive resources to prevent a total loss of the Building, he also would like to thank the crews and police for their hard work”.
‘Can we please ask all parents and carers to talk to their loved ones about the dangers of entering derelict buildings.
‘There are lots of dangers inside those buildings that could cause serious harm.
‘Also setting fire to them is a criminal offence that will have severe consequences when caught.
‘A criminal conviction for arson will limit job and travel opportunities in later life.
‘It also puts their lives and those attending the incident at unnecessary risk.’
