SCORES of Croydon College students and staff were evacuated from the building last night (Monday) after a blaze broke out in the beauty suite's utility room.
Around 100 people were forced to leave the building after a tumble dryer overheated and caught fire at around 8.10pm.
Two crews and 12 fire fighters from Croydon fire station attended the scene and contained and extinguished the blaze within two hours.
Red watch manager Harvey Payne said the incident was still "under investigation" but that "nothing sinister" is suspected to have taken place.
He said: "We were alerted by a fire alarm and the fire was just breaking out when we arrived. The whole college was evacuated, about 100 people at the time.
"We brought it under control with two fire crews from Croydon and one from Forest Hill and we were there for a couple of hours."
