Electrical fire overnight forces Riverlink tenancy to shut

A BLAZE in Riverlink Shopping Centre's food court had emergency services rushing to the shopping precinct at about 10pm last night.

Four Queensland Fire and Emergency Service crews were called to the blaze which began at 9.45pm in the food court, according to a spokesperson.

"We sent four crews, the first crew arrived at 9.57pm," they said.

The crews located a fire, extinguished it while Queensland Police evacuated the centre.

"We had firefighters in breathing apparatuses clearing the area," the spokesperson said.

No one was hospitalised after the incident.

Riverlink centre manager Alexa Arnott said it was a small electrical fire.

"It was a small, contained fire in one of the tenancies," she said.

"It was an electrical fire, they just have to clean up today and they'll be open for trade tomorrow."
