CENTRAL High St remains closed to traffic tonight following this morning’s fire in the building that housed three New Norfolk businesses. A security guard is on duty overnight and the building was still smouldering earlier this evening.
Pedestrians still have access to shops in the area but the High St/Burnett St junction remains closed to traffic. Fences and barriers are in place.
ABC News tonight reported that the fire had caused damage estimated at more than $1 million and the 99-year-old building was likely to be demolished.
