NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 20/05/2016

Southland Museum and Art Gallery in Invercargill has reopened after an electrical fault prompted its closure.

About 30 people were evacuated from the building on Friday afternoon when smoke was seen coming from a switchboard.

Museum manager Paul Horner said an electrician was carrying out repairs after a transformer overheated in the switchboard.

The building had been declared safe to use and the museum had reopened.
