Approximately 26 firefighters responded to a flooding incident in Melbourne’s CBD on Thursday evening.  

FRV crews were called to the Spencer Street incident at 6:30pm after a caller to Triple Zero (000) reported flooding in a 62 storey apartment complex.

Crews arrived in four minutes to find that hydrants within emergency stairwells had been activated on multiple floors of the building.
