Share Canberra's trusted news:


FIREFIGHTERS have forced entry into a Dickson home after a neighbour called Emergency Triple Zero (000).

ACT Fire & Rescue was called to the unit in Karuah Street after receiving the call at 1:08pm.

Fire crews discovered food alight on the stove and quickly extinguished it.

A search of the property found a man and woman asleep in an upstairs bedroom. They are currently being assessed by ACT Ambulance Service intensive care paramedics.


The ACT Ambulance Service has transported two people to Calvary Hospital for further assessment of non fire related medical conditions.
