Firefighters have spent the early hours of the morning battling a suspicious blaze at a tattoo parlour in Clayton South.

Crews were called to the premises on the corner of Centre Road and Clayton Road about 3.30am following several Triple Zero (000) calls.

They arrived to find the shop engulfed in fire which was threatening shops on either side.

Luckily no one was inside the building at the time.

It took 28 firefighters 45 minutes to get the fire under control.

Crews managed to stop the blaze from spreading to adjoining shops.

At this stage, the incident is being treated as suspicious and Victoria Police will investigate.
