A fire caused an estimated $100,000 worth of damage to a unit in Franklin this morning, according to ACT Emergency Services.
The blaze was started by an electrical fault just after 10am in the ground-floor unit of a three-storey building in Flemington Rd, which was unoccupied at the time.
Firefighters evacuated nearby residents and were able to contain the fire to the one-bedroom unit, with surrounding units suffering only minor damage.
Paramedics also attended the scene and no injuries were reported.
