Fatal unit fire at Springvale
CFA and MFB firefighters battled a blaze at a Springvale unit overnight which destroyed one unit and damaged a couple of neighbouring units.
CFA was called to the fire in Buckingham Avenue just after midnight and found the unit fully alight.
Firefighters controlled the fire within 30 minutes and located a body inside the unit. Occupants of the adjoining units were evacuated and given temporary accommodation for the night.
Station Officer Matt Jones from Springvale Brigade was the Incident Controller. The cause is not believed to be suspicious but is being investigated by CFA and Victoria Police.
