Chickens die in fire at school
10:13am Sunday 19th August 2012 in News
A school’s flock of chickens has been decimated by a fire.
More than half of the chickens kept at Rudyard Kipling Primary School in Chalkland Rise, Woodingdean had been killed after a fire broke out in their coup last night.
Firefighters from Roedean were called to the school at about 10.30pm and said they had recovered the bodies of at least ten chickens.
It is now thought that the fire spread from an incinerator in a neighbour's gardens and not from a fire on the school grounds as previously reported.
