A Reservoir unit has been severely damaged by fire.

When first MFB fire crews arrived on scene just before 10pm on October 19, they found the ground floor, two-bedroom, brick unit fully involved in fire and threatening the adjoining unit.

The location of the family was unknown and firefighters, wearing breathing apparatus, searched the premises. 

Fortunately no-one was found at home.  The unit and its contents have been severely damaged.

Commander Frank Stockton has praised firefighters for their skilled actions in stopping the spread of the fire which had started to impact the adjoining unit.

All units in the block of nine were without power as a result of the fire for sometime.

MFB firefighters remained on scene throughout the night with continuing fire duties.

The cause of the fire is unknown and specialist MFB Fire Investigators will investigate.
