Approximately 25 firefighters responded to a garage fire in Ivanhoe East on Tuesday night.

FRV crews were called to the Lower Heidelberg Road scene just before 8:40pm after a caller to Triple Zero (000) reported the incident.

Firefighters arrived on scene in six minutes to find a garage at the back of a property fully alight, and threatening a boat parked alongside the garage.

Wearing breathing apparatus, firefighters worked to contain the fire, and brought it under control in 19 minutes.

No injuries were reported, and firefighters believed the cause to be suspicious.

They handed the scene over to Victoria Police for further investigation.
