Fortunately there were minimal people inside the premises

Just before 10am this morning crews attended an accident where a bus has gone into the front of a café on the corner of Victoria Street and Dryburgh Street in North Melbourne.

Fortunately there were minimal people inside the establishment at the time and there were no reported injuries apart from some very minor injuries to the bus driver.

Initial crews on scene called for MFB's USAR ( Urban Search and Rescue ) team to help shore up the premises so the bus could be removed and the site made safe. 

Once the bus was removed some demolition works were required and MFB coordinated this with the Council.

Eight appliances and twenty eight firefighters attended.
