Officers relieved as rain believed culprit in false alarm

HUMIDITY is the likely cause of a fire alarm being activated in the Telstra Exchange in Coffs Harbour on Sunday morning.

Around 11.45am two appliances and officers responded to the alarm at the rear entrance to the building in Moonee Street.

Arriving at the scene there was no smoke or fire damage evident and after entering the building and conducting an inspection, the all clear was given.

An officer confirmed the false alarm and said the likely cause was connected a heavy shower of rain that fell earlier in the morning.
