A fire at Mosgiel's Taieri College in Otago has destroyed sporting equipment and uniforms, trophies and drama costumes.

Nine crews battled the blaze in the school hall yesterday. Principal David Hunter says although the roof is asbestos, he's been assured no particles have been damaged.

The school was open today and NCEA exams will go ahead as scheduled.

At the moment the fire's not being considered suspicious.
