Dimitrov was on court for nearly two-and-a-half hours before finally subduing the British number two, who was right in the contest until he hurt his ankle with the score at 4-4 in the third set.

Dimitrov was the first to come to his aid, leaping the net and sprinting over to help his opponent up and guide him to his chair.

The No. 3-ranked Dimitrov was broken in the last game of the first set to give No. 128-ranked Millman the lead.

"John played unbelievable tonight", Dimitrov said.

None of the injuries are life-threatening, officials said . "Our units arrived and were immediately faced with heavy fire". Mayor Bill de Blasio called it the "worst fire tragedy we have seen in this city in at least a quarter century".

The match was locked at 4-4 in the final set, with Edmund having battled back from losing the first 6-3 to level the match after a second-set tie-break.

While he was taken out of Brisbane, it appeared as though he may be a doubt for the Australian Open as Edmund went over on his ankle midway through the deciding set. "It's very unfortunate what happened".

On a day when Johanna Konta withdrew from her quarter-final with injury and Andy Murray announced he would not be able to play the Australian Open, Edmund gave British tennis something to cheer about with his win over Chung. "I really hope he gets better".

"I will look to fly to Sydney and I'm ready to pick myself up and go again, " he said. "I've seen this too many times".

"I'm feeling pretty good".

In the other semi-final Australian wild card Alex de Minaur will face America's Ryan Harrison.

Dimitrov will face Australia's Nick Kyrgios in the semi-final after he overcame Ukraine's Alexandr Dolgopolov 1-6 6-3 6-4.

Harrison moved through when his opponent, Uzbekistan's Denis Istomin, retired due to a left hip injury with the American leading 7-6 (8/6), 4-2.
