Motorist calls fire brigade after spotting Braybrook blaze

27 Jul 2017
The cause of a fire at a mechanical workshop in Braybrook overnight will be investigated.

Crews were called to the Duke Street property at 12.41am and quickly arrived on scene to find the concrete building issuing smoke.  Wearing breathing apparatus they made forced entry into one of the units, a mechanical workshop, finding it well alight inside.  The internal fire damage is extensive.

Concern was raised as to the extension of fire into the neighbouring units but due to the effective firefighting, only smoke logging occurred to the Appliance Mobility business next door.

The Council Building Surveyor has been asked to attend to check the integrity on the internal wall between both units.

Interestingly, only one fire call was received reporting the fire (someone driving by and fortunately saw smoke from the roof). 

The fire was brought under control in 30 minutes.  MFB Firefighters will be remaining on scene into the morning. 

The cause is being investigated.
