Evacuation at Rotorua managed isolation facility after fire
People have been evacuated from a Rotorua managed isolation hotel after a fire, emergency services have confirmed.
A police spokeswoman said police were on the scene helping Fire and Emergency NZ staff after a fire in the laundry of the Sudima Hotel.
Smoke had also been seen coming from the roof, she said.
A Rotorua Daily Post photographer said two fire appliances were at the scene and he could hear a roll call being taken behind white screens at the rear of the hotel.
Police were called to the incident about 1pm.
The spokeswoman said due to the hotel being a managed isolation facility fire crews would require special access.
More to come.
