Intense fire rages in Sippy Downs
Written by Danyon Newcombe / Published on 2 February 2017

A fire has broken out at the university as fire services including two helicopters are working to take on the fire.

It is unclear how the blaze started and is currently set to affect areas including Varsity View Court, Statesman Circuit, Earnest Lane and Cairncroft Place within the next two hours.

Twelve fire crews and aerial waterbombers are on the scene to try and control the blaze but fire services are urging people to evacuate early in order to avoid any catastrophes.

The fire has drawn quite the crowd as students are watching from both sides of the lake.

The fire is right next to UniCentral and Varsity and residents should be careful of the immenant threat.

It is not clear if these places will need to be evacuated but we recommend getting your valuables ready to leave just incase.
