Aged care home fire in Melbourne endangers residents in more ways than one

Published on

A fire which broke out in the roof of a Templestowe aged care home last week has endangered residents in more ways than one.

More than 100 residents were ushered out of the building into the relative safety of an outdoor meeting area, only to be placed in close proximity to one another and fire and rescue crews, in breach of social distancing regulation.

No residents were harmed as a direct result of the fire, but time will tell with Covid-19.
