A school in Perth had to be evacuated after a four-storey building caught fire.

Part of Perth High School on Oakbank Road went up in flames at about 10:45 on Friday.

Firefighters used two sets of breathing apparatus, a hose reel jet and a covering jet to extinguish the flames.

The blaze was put out by 11:20. Crew members later cut away parts of the fire-damaged building.

A post on school's Twitter feed said: "A small isolated fire broke out at PHS this morning. The incident has been dealt with by the fire service and classes will resume this pm."
