Cork airport evacuated over burnt toast

The terminal at Cork airport had to be evacuated earlier - because of a burnt piece of toast.

The smouldering snack in a break room triggered two fire alarms, forcing all staff and passengers out of the building.

However, the evacuation only lasted for seven minutes, and didn't lead to any flight delays.
