Staff had extinguished the fire by the time firefighters had arrived but there was a small amount of light smoke coming from one of the units, PGFR Asst. Chief John Law said. Firefighters checked for any further hot spots and ventilated the unit.

The lone occupant had got out safely and there were no injuries.
