Pub evacuated after ceiling fan fire

SMOKE from a toilet ceiling fan caused the temporary evacuation of patrons from Port Fairy's Caledonian Hotel last night.

Fire brigade officers received a call at 7.28pm to attend the Bank Street hotel, known as The Stump, after smoke was detected.

Officers used a thermal imaging camera to confirm the fire was out when they arrived.

The Stump owner Gary Umbers said the smoke only caused a minor disruption to the evening's entertainment.

"The band was back in action half an hour after the fire brigade officers left. We're pretty resilient over here. A good night was had by all," he said.
