Two hospitalised following kitchen fire on the Gold Coast

Two people have been hospitalised after a fire broke out at a unit in Labrador last night.

Emergency services were called to the private property on Central Street, around 10.15pm.

The whole unit block had been evacuated as a result of the flames.


Two fire trucks were deployed for the job, though it seemed the flames had already been extinguished when they got to the scene.

Four ambulances were called to the scene as well, including a critical care paramedic.

A man and a woman were treated briefly at the scene by paramedics, before being taken to Gold Coast University Hospital.

The man – in his 40s – didn’t sustain any apparent injuries.

The woman – in her 40s – suffered from smoke inhalation.

They’re believed to be in stable conditions.
