Fire at Parliament House

By johnboy 29 November 2012 21

ACT Fire & Rescue has responded to an automatic fire alarm call to Parliament House this afternoon.

Fire crews arrived to find a fire had ignited within the Great Hall near the front public entrance to the building but had been extinguished by on site security staff.

The fire in a curtin is believed to have been sparked by a nearby light fitting. The immediate area was temporarily evacuated.

Firefighters are now ventilating the room.

Time of call was 1:39pm.
