Smoke forces children and carers to evacuate

Share Canberra's trusted news:

SMOKE forced 85 children, parents and carers to evacuate from ANU Preschool and Child Care Centre.  

At about 1.45pm today (November 15) ACT Fire & Rescue found a small amount of smoke coming from an aquarium. Crews have removed a small amount of smouldering tanbark from the area and the building is now in the process of being reoccupied.

All occupants are safe and accounted for.
