7:35am Friday 16 September 2011 – Update 13 – Mitchell factory fire

Further atmospheric testing in Mitchell has still found no sign of Phosgene in the air.

The smoke is rising higher and starting to dissipate.

The ACT Fire Brigade has now reduced the exclusion zone back to the suburb of Mitchell from the fire.

People are free to now move around north Canberra except within the exclusion zone at Mitchell.

People are asked to be patient with the delays that will be experienced.

The evacuation centre at Dickson College will remain open for as long as required.
