A barbecue and fridge have apparently caused a bit of a scare, after going up in flames at a Surfers Paradise apartment block.
The blaze broke out on a balcony of the beach-side complex around 6pm on Wednesday, forcing a partial evacuation of residents and holiday-makers.
They gathered out onto the footpath while fire crews attended the scene on Elkhorn Avenue.
Firefighters managed to put the flames out quickly.
Paramedics were on stand-by but no one was injured during the incident.
