Firefighters spent the early hours of the morning battling a massive blaze that broke out at an e-bike repair centre in Sydney’s inner west.
Emergency crews were called to Elizabeth Street in Croydon at about 5am this morning (Friday January 5). 15 firetrucks, around 60 firefighters and two aerial appliances arrived at the scene to extinguish the blaze.
At the time of the fire, the warehouse was housing e-bikes, which contain highly volatile lithium batteries.
According to NSW Police, no one was believed to be inside the warehouse when the blaze broke out. There are no reported injuries at this time.
Road closures are in place at Elizabeth Street between Frederick and Edwin Street North.
