Team arrives from Brisbane to investigate Maryborough fire

INVESTIGATIONS are continuing into a suspicious fire that burnt through a Maryborough unit and damaged others in the complex.

A police spokesman said emergency crews were called to the Fort St blaze about 11.50pm on Friday night.

He said the cause of the fire was still being determined but officers were treating it as suspicious.

"An investigation team has come up from Brisbane and they are working together with the fire investigations officer and our local scene of crime group," the spokesman said.

"They have conducted further investigations and taken samples for further analysis."

People living in the complex had to be evacuated while fire crews contained the blaze and it was several hours before they were allowed to return to their homes.

Anyone with information which could help police can contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
