Twenty firefighters have battled a blaze at a two-storey unit in Footscray.

Crews were called to the Beevers Street home at 10.13am.

The unit is one of five in a complex. Initial crews on scene performed an aggressive attack on the fire to prevent it getting into the roof space and extending to the adjoining units.

The unit has sustained damage to both the ground floor and first floor.

It took 30 minutes to bring the fire under control.

One woman has been assessed by Ambulance Victoria.

At this stage a cause has not been confirmed so our Fire Investigation will be attending.
