The quick work of firefighters stopped a fire from overtaking a building in Croydon this afternoon.

MFB firefighters were called to Maroondah Highway and Murray Rd just before 3:30pm after reports that an air conditioner unit was producing a significant amount of smoke.

Crews arrived within six minutes and found a fire located in the roof space of the single story building.

Using hose lines onto the roof, firefighters were able to contain the fire and prevent it from spreading.

All children and adults at the premises safely evacuated prior to MFB’s arrival.

At the height of the incident there were more than a dozen firefighters and a command unit at the scene.
