Entertainment centre evacuated after false alarm

GLADSTONE Entertainment Centre was evacuated on Friday night after a false alarm forced the venue to be cleared.

GEC marketing manager Garry Hansen said the issue had been with heat from the ovens setting off the fire alarms as they were still being tuned.

Mr Hansen said the evacuation went smoothly and the issue was quickly resolved.
