MULTIPLE units from local fire brigades are at the scene of a fire behind the St Vincent de Paul charity shop in New Norfolk this morning.

not directly affected by the fire.
Attention was initially focused on the rear of the shop, accessed off Leatham St, where a gas cylinder and a donation bin appeared to be alight, according to an eyewitness.
Firefighters using breathing apparatus have since entered the shop, which has suffered previous attacks on its charity bin. The incident comes as “Vinnies” prepares to relocate to larger premises in High St.
The Mercury newspaper’s report can be seen here.
