Fire broke out at what is understood to be an automotive shop just after 4.30am.

Around six fire crew were called to the scene to battle the fire.

The fire is reported to be mostly out now.

"Firefighters have gained access to the shops next door to make sure the fire hasn't spread," says a person at the scene.

The cause of the fire is yet to be determined.

UPDATE: Firefighters are battling a large blaze as flames engulf a building in Greerton.

Cameron Road is closed as six to seven fire crews battle the fire in a building next to Countdown on Cameron Road.

A reporter at the scene says the fire has completely gutted the building, which is probably the size of a large automotive garage.
