With a car in a major fire in Australia’s south-west, Bellevues car park is the first to close permanently after a fire at a petrol station in May.
The fire was sparked in the petrol station’s fuel station car park in Melbourne’s north-west on May 20.
It is believed to have been caused by a fuel pump fire that burnt for hours.
Melbourne Fire and Emergency Service spokeswoman Sarah Woll said at the time it was unclear if there were other fires at petrol stations around the state, but it was not immediately known how many petrol stations had been affected.
A spokesman for Bellevites police said the fire caused damage to several buildings, but there was no risk to the public.
Bellevites fire service is investigating the cause of the fire.
Fire crews responded to the scene and extinguished the blaze.
They were able to save several vehicles, including a Ford Falcon.
“We’ve got a lot of cars out there,” Ms Woll told ABC News.
At the time of the blaze, Belleville police said they had received a report of a burning vehicle in the nearby petrol station.
Residents had to be rescued from the petrol pump, and the fire had been put out by the end of the day. ABC/wires
