ACT Fire & Rescue have extinguished a small fire in an extraction fan at St Francis Xavier College on Barnard Circuit, Florey.

Students in a woodwork room self-evacuated the area immediately after smelling smoke. All students and staff acted quickly to evacuate according to the emergency evacuation procedure, gathering on the oval.

Three fire pumpers and the Breathing Apparatus Support vehicle arrived on the scene after receiving a Triple Zero (000) call at 12:39 pm.

Students and staff returned to buildings once fire crews provided the all clear.

There are no reported injuries.
