(ABC News: Erin Parke) A prison escapee has been charged over a blaze which caused millions of dollars in damage to the historic Broome Primary School in WA's Kimberley, with police alleging she set fire to the school just hours after starting another one in a jail cell.

Much of the school is feared to have been destroyed after it went up in flames about 4.00 pm yesterday afternoon.

Classrooms were quickly engulfed in the flames and fireballs could be seen exploding several metres around the buildings, some of which date back to 1901.

Three prisoners who planned an elaborate escape with outside help were thrown back into the maximum-security Central Men's Jail in Santa Ana, California, appearing before a judge through a video feed to face new charges. It has emerged that the fugitive allegedly planned to kill a taxi driver.

Police closed roads in the area and ordered members of the public to move back amid concerns about asbestos in the school.

People gathered to watch the inferno, including teachers and parents who were brought to tears by the sight.

Police allege 22-year-old Maude Dixon set fire to the school after escaping from Broome Regional Prison just two hours earlier when she lit a blaze inside a cell.

"It will be alleged the woman was responsible for both fires, and that the fires were lit to aid her escape," a WA Police spokesman said.

The prison cell fire damaged furniture and other items, but police said the damage bill from the school blaze was much greater.

"An initial estimate suggests the fire caused $3–5 million worth of damage, however, the extent of the damage is still being assessed and the initial estimate may be subject to change," the police spokesman said.

Dozens of firefighters attended the blaze, including a specialist crew from Broome Airport, and some had to use bolt cutters to get into the school, which was closed due to school holidays.

A thick plume of black smoke could be seen from across town, and the nearby Broome Hospital was partially evacuated due to risks associated with the smoke.

Broome Primary School teacher Mary-Jane Crutchley was among those watching and said the fire was "devastating".

"I smelled it from home and then I got texts," she said.

A number of students and other children also witnessed the blaze.
