A spokesman for the pre-school said: “ The fire was right behind our garden area and there was thick smoke when it started.

"All the staff and children managed to evacuate quickly and safely.

" We would like to acknowledge how quickly and calmly staff managed to safely get all children out and across a busy road. The children were so brave. Big hats off to them.”

It is not believed that the blaze caused any damage to the nursery premises.

In July last year another garden fire sparked a major incident at Kiddi Caru Day Nursery in Walnut Tree.

The blaze destroyed the nursery building completely., along with several nearby homes.
