Lacrosse Docklands fire - VBA to investigate
Monday, 27 April 2015
The Victorian Building Authority (VBA) will be investigating the conduct of the building practitioners involved in the construction of the Lacrosse Apartments in Melbourne's Docklands precinct after a review of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade's (MFB) report on the fire incident.
The MFB's investigation found that the cause of the fire was due to an unextinguished cigarette on a balcony.
The VBA acknowledges and supports the MFB and the City of Melbourne's confirmation the building, which suffered damage during the fire last year, is safe to occupy with sprinklers, smoke detection and early emergency warning systems in place.
