Pies may be off the menu for Palmerston North City Council staff after the fire service was called to council buildings this afternoon.

A fire communications spokesman said they were called when smoke from a burnt pie activated smoke alarms in the building on The Square shortly before 1pm.

No damage was done to the building, but the status of the pie was unknown.
