Small Fire at Government Building, Short circuit apparent cause


On Monday, April 06, 2009, around 4.15 pm, an apparent short circuit caused an electrical fire on the main electrical line in the Government Administration Building.

Personnel quickly evacuated the building while fire fighters extinguished the flames, which were contained in the small electrical room at the rear of the Government Administration Building. Some smoke did protrude to certain areas of the building due to normal air movement, but there were no injuries to the occupants of the building.
