An investigation is under way after the second fire in less than a month at the old Fairham Community College site in Clifton.
The blaze broke out around 7.44pm on Tuesday (May 9) and began on the first floor before spreading to the roof of the derelict building.
Crews from West Bridgford, Highfields, London Road and Arnold were called to deal with the fire on Farnborough Road.
No-one was hurt but people in Clifton were asked to keep doors and windows closed as the fire produced plumes of thick black smoke.

Around 40 firefighters were involved and the fire was out by 11pm.
Crews continued to dampen down the scene and a full fire investigation will take place today, Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service said.

Firefighters were called to similar fires at the site last month and in October 2014.
