Fire EFS 2 

Over the weekend there was a fire in EFS 2, thankfully no one was injured. Fire rescue authorities were quickly on site to contain the fire and are currently investigating the cause.

As a result of the fire, a water main burst between EFS 2 and EFS 3, which impacted toilet facilities. The issue has been contained and a current workaround means facilities are running as normal, however further work will be completed in the affected area in the coming week.

Further updates to impacted businesses will be sent directly via email.
