All safe at The Prospect Centre

Several witnesses report no audible alarm but Humberside Fire and Rescue responded speedily to an alarm on their system, and three fire appliances arrived soon after the evacuation.

After investigation, an overheated light fitting was discovered as having caused the incident.
