Fire at Melbourne aged care facility

Elderly residents had to leave their rooms at a Melbourne aged care facility overnight when a fire started in roof space above one resident’s room.

Firefighters brought the blaze under control in 20 minutes but stayed behind to assist transport 23 residents to alternative lodgings, the Metropolitan Fire Brigade said.

Transport ambulances helped move some residents off the Doncaster East site but no one was injured.
