Fire Destroys Spring Hill Property On St Pauls Terrace

In recent news a fire has engulfed a commercial property at 123 St Pauls Terrace on Sunday morning, sending plumes of smoke into the air and causing police to close the street.

Emergency services were called to the single-storey brick property on St Pauls Terrace about 7.20am, to find the building “well-involved”.

Six crews, about 20 firefighters in total, battled the blaze externally, due to concerns about structural damage to the property. They also managed to protect a neighbouring property, which was under threat from the fire at one point.

By 8am, the fire was under control and soon crews were dampening down hotspots. A search of the building, which was at least 29 years old, was later conducted and found the home was vacant.

Nearby residents were evacuated as smoke poured from the property, but they were given the all-clear to return to their homes about 9.30am. Paramedics had not treated anyone at the scene.

 The house was not destroyed, but did suffer significant structural damage. The cause was yet to be determined, but fire investigators were expected to remain at the scene for most of the day.
Police closed St Pauls Terrace between Quarry and Rogers Streets and were asking motorists to avoid the area, however the road reopened about 11.15am.
