Eastern District Police are currently at the scene of a building fire in the CBD.

Just before 7.30pm on Saturday 15 February, police and fire crews were called to a building in Rundle Mall, after MFS received a fire alarm for the premises.

On arrival, the building was well alight, but the fire crew contained the blaze before it could spread to neighbouring properties.

Rundle Mall and surrounding streets were evacuated for public safety due to the smoke billowing down the mall.

Fire Cause Investigators are attending tonight to examine the scene with the fire being treated as suspicious.

Anyone with information on the incident including persons seen in the area at the time of the blaze is asked to please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
