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.
