One dead, two injured in ferocious Bribie Island unit fire

ONE person has tragically perished in a ferocious fire at a unit in Bribie Island this morning.

Just after 7.00am, emergency crews rushed to a Boyd Street residential complex at Woorim after receiving reports one of the units was ablaze.

Fire crews managed to contain the fire to the one unit, which was significantly damaged.


An elderly man was evacuated from the unit and rushed to Caboolture Hospital for smoke inhalation, whilst a man in his 40s was treated at the scene for lacerations to his legs.

Sadly, when investigating the blaze, police located a deceased person inside the unit.

Investigations are continuing.
