At around 11pm last night crews were called to a car fire in Gregory Street. On arrival found a vehicle well alight next to a business building. The heat and flames from the vehicle impacted on the premises which cause the fire to spread inside. Crews quickly knocked down the fire from the car and another line of hose was used to contain and extinguish the fire in the office section of the building. Crews in BA with a thermal imaging camera surveyed the rest of the premises for any hot spots in the rest of the building but found nothing except for smoke and heat damage.
