False alarm at Timaru Courthouse
The smell of smoke in an office area prompted an evacuation of the Timaru Courthouse on North St this afternoon.
A Timaru fire station spokeswoman said two engines had been sent to the courthouse about 3.40pm.
However, it appeared to be a false alarm.
Herald reporter Emma Bailey, at the courthouse at the time, said people were now able to re-enter the building.
