The College Lane LRC was evacuated today due to a small fire breaking out in the Red Zone of the first floor.
A student who witnessed the event has reported that they could smell burning previously, and then heard a bang, before all the computers in the area turned off. Visible flames could be seen underneath the desk.
Another student then pressed the fire alarm before alerting a member of staff to the event, and the LRC was safely evacuated. Staff and students were allowed to re-enter after about 15 minutes.
After part of the Red Zone was cordoned off, it was safe for everyone to eagerly return to work as normal.
