Suspicious fire in a Preston unit has forced the evacuation of 30 residents.
Several calls to the Eric St address were made just before 10 last night to a 1st-floor unit.
It was under control about half-an-hour later and two people were treated on-scene by paramedics.
The Age described the apartment block as “asbestos-riddled” and the 30 residents had to find alternative accommodation.
The cause of the fire is not yet known.
