Firefighters evacuated about 200 people from a building in Dickson on Thursday afternoon after responding to an automatic fire alarm.

ACT Fire & Rescue crews were alerted to the incident on the corner of Northbourne Avenue and Antill St just after 2.39pm.

They arrived to find visible signs of smoke. A spokesperson said afterwards that the cause of smoke appeared to have been the tripping of electrical circuits in a computer room.

Two Pumpers were on scene, along with a breathing apparatus support van and hazmat unit.

Crew members completed atmospheric monitoring and evacuated staff were able to re-enter the building shortly before 4pm.

Is this a result of the planning at the World Heritage listed Dickson parklands being rubbish?
