Firefighters have spent the afternoon battling a garage fire which threatened to engulf homes in Sunshine North.

Crews were called to the scene in Brooker Street just after midday, following frantic Triple Zero (000) calls from neighbours who raised the alarm.

When they arrived, the fire was threatening to spread to adjoining homes.

It took thirty firefighters in breathing apparatus about 45 minutes to bring the fire under control.

Despite severe damage to the attached house, crews managed to stop the spread of the fire.

The cause of the fire will be investigated.
