Abandoned Gym Destroyed In Massive Inferno In Melbourne

The suburb of Doncaster in Melbourne has been covered in a thick black smoke, after a building in Melbourne became engulfed in flames overnight.

The abandoned gym was overtaken by the burning red flames and a thick smoke quickly spread to neighbouring streets.

Firefighters were called to the scene and it took them around an hour to bring the blaze at the two-storey building under control.

A smoke warning was issued to the surrounding area after the Westfield building across the street from the gym became completely hidden by the black haze, but this has since been lifted.

Police have now opened an investigation into the cause of the fire at the disused building and will remain at the crime scene this morning.
