Australia team safe after Rio Olympic Village fire evacuation
RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - The Australian team evacuated their building at the Olympic Village in Rio de Janeiro Friday because of a fire in the basement, according to a team spokesman.
The fire caused no injuries and the team was back in the building after half an hour, the spokesman said.
The incident follows a week of tension at the Olympic Village, where Australia and several other teams complained about unfinished and dirty rooms before moving in.
