Fire has been reported at Workers’ House in the city centre. The fire which broke out a few minutes after 5:00pm caused the alarm to go off.

According to eyewitnesses at the building, there was smoke coming out of the basement floor of the building. This forced all the people in the building to dash out.

 

However, fire brigade quickly responded and fire marshals took charge of the situation.

“We would like to express our appreciation to all our staff and our tenants at Workers
