Firefighters battle huge blaze at Springvale South buddhist temple

Firefighters were battling on Sunday night to contain a huge fire that took hold at a Buddhist temple in Springvale South.

At least three dozen fire vehicles and appliances, including some with high ladders, were called to the scene on Springvale Road after the fire broke out at around 8pm.

The fire is yet to be brought under control.

Smoke from the fire at the two-storey temple has been spotted as far as 15 kilometres away according to social media posts while FRV has warned residents to continue to monitor the fire in case conditions change.

Social media videos show bright flames along the top of the temple.
