Apartment fire extinguished in Belconnen

A quick response tonight by ACT Fire & Rescue crews has prevented an apartment fire spreading to an adjoining property in Macquarie.

Several units responded to the Blaxcell Place home after receiving an emergency triple zero call just after 11 o'clock.

On arrival firefighters forced entry and conducted a search but found nobody inside.

They quickly extinguished the fire and contained it to the ground floor of the property.

The cause will be investigated.
