According to the Committee’s source, the ignition took place at an underground car park.

‘Emergency Response Plan was activated and approximately 100 athletes and officials were evacuated in an orderly and controlled fashion. The stairwells filled with smoke but the fire was confined to the car park and no one was injured. The fire was extinguished by the Fire Brigade and team members were allowed back into the building after about 30 minutes’, reads the message at the Australian NOC’s website.
