Faulty light fitting evacuates Hughes Primary

johnboy 29 July 2011

Approximately 350 have been safely evacuated from Hughes Primary School following reports of smoke in the building.

The ACT Fire Brigade responded with multiple resources and found a faulty light fitting in the school library emitting smoke.

Firefighters are currently ventilating the area and will carry out atmospheric monitoring before allowing everyone back inside.

Evacuation was because of a smell of smoke not the presence of any.
