Firefighters responded to fire at a Narre Warren North property during the early hours of Thursday 11 January following reports of an explosion.
It is believed a fire broke out in the garage of a Crawley Road residence at about 12.47am.
A police spokesperson said no one was injured and CFA fire investigators deemed the fire non-suspicous although the cause was unknown.
Seventeen firefighters from Narre Warren, Narre Warren North and Hallam brigades contained the blaze within 30 minutes.
Narre Warren North Captain Mark Dodirch said the garage was challenging to access as it was located at the rear of the property.
But he said firefighters were able to prevent it from spreading.
“Crews worked together to run hose from the front of the property to the back. They did a very good job to contain the fire to the building with no other damage to neighbouring properties.”
“The firefight went very, very well. It was a well-managed, well delivered firefight. There was some loss of property but it was contained to a minimum,” he said.
Four fire trucks were required to extinguish the blaze, which remained at the scene for three hours.
Mr Dodirch said there were a number of cars in the garage that were allegedly damaged.
“Out of courtesy to the owners I can’t comment on what was lost in the fire.”
“At the end of the day someone had a very bad night and loss some property that was valuable to them.”
