$1,000,000 structure fire at Mt Compass - 18th June 2022

At approximately 3:30am this morning, CFS crews were alerted to a structure fire in a block of shops at Mt Compass.

Over 40 CFS crews, on 9 trucks including a bulk water carrier, arrived on scene to find the structure fully involved.

While three shops were destroyed, firefighters were able to prevent the spread of the fire to neighbouring businesses.

It’s expected crews will remain on scene for some time while they continue to extinguish remaining hotspots.

Total losses are believed to be greater than $1 million dollars, and Fire Cause Investigators will be on scene early this morning
