MFB firefighters made quick work to extinguish a fire that broke out in a complex in Clayton this evening.

Crews were alerted to the blaze in Francis Street at 7:06pm following a Triple Zero (000) call from a passerby.

Upon arrival, crews were met with flames issuing from the middle unit of the five unit complex.

Firefighters in breathing apparatus used cover lines to ensure the fire did not spread to neighbouring properties. An internal search found no occupants inside the property.

The fire was declared under control in less than an hour. Firefighters are expected to remain on scene for some time. 

Francis St is closed and the community is asked to avoid the area to allow emergency services to conduct their operations. 

A community advice warring has been issued for smoke in surrounding the area of Francis St.

The cause of the blaze has not been determined.
