A STRUCTURAL fire in the Northbourne flats in Braddon has caused severe damage to a second storey unit.

Nine appliances, including four pumpers and the HAZMAT crew, are on the scene. The fire has now been extinguished but ACTF&R remain ventilating the floors above as they were heavily smoke affected.

Henty Street in Braddon has been temporarily closed. The flat was unoccupied and it appears that no-one has been injured.
