Thursday, 20 May 2021 at 10:55 am

CCTV cameras prompted an emergency call out to Braeside this evening after a factory owner spotted a blaze in his building and raised the alarm.

FRV crews were quick on the scene, arriving at the Macbeth Street factory just after 6.30pm to find flames and smoke issuing from the brick and metal building.

Crews from FRV and CFA attended the incident, firefighters working quickly  to attack the flames from inside the factory using water hose lines, suppressing the blaze and preventing it from spreading to neighbouring properties.

The incident was brought under control just before 7.00pm, approximately 25 minutes after firefighters arrived on scene.


FRV crews will remain at the premises until the fire has been extinguished.

No one was injured in the incident.
