Fire crews have attended another fire at the old Sunshine College Ardeer Campus.

Fire Rescue Victoria was called to the school site on Glengala Road in Sunshine West, just before 9pm on Sunday night.

Crews arrived within five minutes to find a building fully alight.

The fire was brought under control within 30 minutes.

It’s the third fire at the site in less than six months.

There was a fire on the site on December 31 and another one just recently on May 28.

As previously reported by Star Weekly, the Department of Education and Training released details of plans to demolish buildings on the site in September last year due to vandalism.

Brimbank residents had previously called for the site to be repurposed for community use.

The two sites have been vacated since 2020 after the merged four campuses to two.
