Tuesday, 5 October 2021 at 7:48 am

Approximately 30 firefighters responded to a building fire in Kingsville on Tuesday afternoon.

FRV crews were called to the Geelong Street incident just before 5:30pm after multiple callers to Triple Zero (000) reported flames coming from the building.

Firefighters arrived on scene in four minutes to find an abandoned historic building well alight.

Crews worked quickly to attack the fire and prevent it from spreading to a neighbouring caryard, and brought it under control 24 minutes after they first arrived on scene.

Nobody was inside the building at the time, and firefighters handed the scene over to Victoria Police for further investigation.
