Over 70 firefighters are currently responding to a fire in Cheltenham after a call to Triple Zero (000) reported a building engulfed in flames.

FRV and CFA were called to the Herald Street incident just before 11:40 pm and arrived within six minutes to find a 20 x 30 metre single story factory ablaze.

FRV immediately escalated the response due to the size of the fire.

Crews wearing breathing apparatus are currently battling the flames to prevent the fire spreading to the adjourning factory.

The fire is currently not under control and the cause of the fire has not been determined.

A Community Warning has been issued and Victoria Police and Ambulance Victoria are also onsite.
