ACT Fire & Rescue (ACTF&R) have handed the scene at Kootara Crescent, Narrabundah over to ACT Housing. The two occupants that ACT Ambulance Service treated for smoke inhalation and transported to hospital had self evacuated.
The fire was caused by cooking that was left unattended. Fire damage occurred in the kitchen and two other rooms.
