Fire at The Edge

The Edge sports centre had to be evacuated last Friday, after a small fire broke out in one of the offices.

At around 9.50am the alarm was sounded, following which all gym goers evacuated on to the street.

A University of Leeds spokesperson said: “On Friday 21 April there was a full and safe evacuation of The Edge, due to a fire in one of the small offices.

The West Yorkshire Fire Service attended the scene and the building was reopened shortly afterwards.

A specialist fire investigation officer is now working with the University to establish the cause.”
