Approximately 40 firefighters responded to a garage fire in Kew on Thursday morning.

FRV crews were called to the Abeckett Street incident at 5:35am, and arrived on scene within five minutes.

Wearing breathing apparatus, firefighters quickly made access to the garage and worked to knock the fire down.

The fire had already spread to the roof space, which made containing the blaze more difficult.

Firefighters declared the incident under control 25 minutes after arriving on scene.

Fortunately, all occupants of the house had evacuated prior to crews’ arrival. Firefighters transferred one person into the care of Ambulance Victoria paramedics.

Specialist FRV fire investigators will attend the scene to determine the cause.

FRV crews worked alongside Victoria Police at the scene.
