Cannons Creek residents were woken by smoke and sirens tonight as the local shops went up in flames.
The fire started at approximately 10.30pm at the back of the Bedford Street shops, where an old bar used to be. The Laundromat went up in flames and is likely fully destroyed.
A Witness nearby was reportedly told by a Police officer that the fire was started by kids, who set recycling bins alight. This is yet to be confirmed by Police.
The fire is currently under control as firemen work through the night to ensure there is no more risk.
The full extent of the damage won’t be known until the morning.
