Way to put the shining light on the ACT firies when the airport brigade would have been the first in attendance and probably did most of the initial work.

Ah well maybe DFO will donate some of their 5 customers to boost Brand Depot’s back up close to average for a while.. Although if the fire was a DFO it wouldn’t have done much damage because of the empty space.

maybe the tumbleweed is building up in those empty corridors and causing a fire risk…

Yes, all 5 shoppers were evacuated quite quickly. 🙂

Ha! According to the Times, only staff were evacuated. But I assumed that was because there were no shoppers – situation normal.

ACT Fire Brigade, Ambulance and Police in attendance? I’d say they would have outnumbered the customers 10:1.

That would explain the fire trucks I saw on Fairbairn Ave on my way home from work yesterday.
