Fire Destroys Popular Canberra Restaurant

A Canberra restaurant was destroyed by fire on Thursday, October 13, after the blaze broke out just before 4:30 pm.

According to the Canberra Times, staff at Pialligo Estate’s Farmhouse Restaurant were evacuated and large amounts of smoke blanketed the area. ABC journalist Jesse Dorsett, who recorded this footage, said the fire might have started in the kitchen.

On Friday, the estate tweeted that event bookings for the other buildings would go ahead “as normal.” Its other restaurant caught fire a little more than a year ago. Credit: ABC News via Storyful
