Fire crews on Tuesday, February 27, continued to douse the flames that started the night before and destroyed a hardware store in Inglewood, Western Australia. The fire, which at one point reached around eight metres high, was reported at a Bunnings store on Beaufort Street around 9 pm on Monday night, prompting the dispatch of around 100 firefighters, ABC reported. Residents were evacuated due to a risk of exploding pressurised gas canisters and toxic smoke. A Department of Fire and Emergency Services spokeswoman told WA Today that the roof of the store had collapsed while the walls were “leaning precariously in the direction of a block of flats.” While the cause of the fire is still being investigated, the estimated damage caused by the fire is expected to be around $5 million.
