Fire melts sewerage pipe
A small fire in Holt tonight [over the weekend] led residents to find alternative accommodation after a sewerage pipe melted.
The ACT Fire Brigade was called to the Parkview Apartments in Hardwick Crescent at 9:15pm.
Fire fighters arrived to find a fire in a garbage disposal area of the complex. It was quickly extinguished but heat from the fire melted a nearby sewerage pipe leaving residents of six units without toilet facilities.
The damage bill is estimated at several thousand dollars. The cause is undetermined.
