|The New Norfolk Fire Brigade remains at the scene of a fire in the former|
Esperance Ward at the Willow Court historic site earlier tonight.
The blaze appears to have been contained to one room but the huge cloud
of smoke drew many onlookers. The building is privately owned.
The Mercury has the story here.
|The fire appears to have been contained|
to this single room on the ground floor.
|Firefighters preparing to enter the building, which has been progressively|
gutted over the last year to prepare for a conversion to apartments.
