Car Fire in Unit Carport - Farrer

ACT Fire & Rescue (ACTF&R) were called to a car fire in the carport of a two storey unit block on the corner of Lambrigg Street and Pridham Street in Farrer at around 2am this morning. ACTF&R responded with three pumpers, a breathing apparatus vehicle, a hazmat unit and a commander.
