We are indebted to the swift response of the emergency services for getting the fire under control. At this stage our thoughts are very much with all the residents who have been displaced by the fire and we are focussed on working with the emergency services and Council to ensure that the site is safe, power can be restored and people can return to their houses.
We have one employee who was injured in the accident and is being treated for burns...
Accident investigators are now on site and we are awaiting their findings."
