Neighbours ‘dragged a couple of people out’ as fire razes unit block

One witness described waking up “really scared” to hear people screaming and cracking noises.

“My partner saw the fire and just told me to rush and get [the] baby – so we just left the house, grabbed whatever we could get at the time,” she said at the scene on Friday morning.

In a statement, police said the units and a neighbouring complex in Haig Street were evacuated, with “substantial damage” caused by the fire.

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesperson said paramedics treated seven people for smoke inhalation, including two women.

Investigations into the cause of the blaze are ongoing.
