Macquarie National News

Dozens of residents have been evacuated from a Docklands tower due to a fire.

MFB crews were called to the Waterside Place apartment building amid reports of a fire in the rubbish chute about 5am, bringing the blaze under control within minutes.

One resident, Martin, told Channel Nine there was a lot of smoke coming from the chute but no damage to apartments.

“Fire was definitely accumulating through the building, there was a lot of smoke,” he said.

Meanwhile, the crews responding to the blaze also noticed a small fire at a low-rise apartment complex about 300 metres away.

That blaze was also brought under control within minutes.
