ACT Fire & Rescue is currently on the scene of a fire in the carpark of a block on units in Dickson.
Crews were alerted to the incident on Dooring Street just after 2:48pm.
Update to follow.
ACT Fire & Rescue have responded to the presence of smoke in a unit block carpark caused by a mechanical malfunction in a car filled with excess oil, not a fire as previously reported.
Firefighters evacuated nine people from the unit block as a precaution.
All occupants have now re-entered the premises after crews ventilated the area.
