ACT Fire Brigade on scene at Westfield Belconnen attending to a partially collapsed ceiling on the bottom floor of the new north wing section.

Water in the roof space has forced part of the gyprock ceiling to collapse at the store trading as Top Bargain.

Minor damage to the store only.

No evacuations.

ACT Ambulance Service intensive care paramedics and an ambulance commander also on scene with no injuries reported.

Two ACT Fire Brigade pumpers on scene and a command vehicle.

Crews alerted following an automatic fire alarm sprinkler activation call at 11.21am.

Relax! A bit of soggy plasterboard is hardly cause for a government inquiry. 😉

They need a viagra store, apparently north siders have trouble keeping things up!

#4 lobster – no, Hot Dollar is still there. Top Bargain is new and downstairs. I suspect there is a connection between them though – staffed by Asians, very similar if not identical products on display out front with identical prices.

Top Dollars next advertising (do they even have advertising) should be SAVINGS THROUGH THE ROOF!

Did anyone check whether the gym upstairs was running a Zumba class at the time?
