Fire Outbreak: Warehouse in Sydney engulfs in flames.

Firefighters have spent the early hours of Friday morning battling a massive blaze at an e-bike repair centre at the inner west, Sydney, capital city of Australia.

Emergency crews were called to Elizabeth Street in Croydon at about 5am after the fire broke out at a warehouse behind a row of shops.

Reports say, 15 firetrucks, about 60 firefighters and two aerial appliances were at the scene to extinguish the blaze.

The Firefighters worked to prevent the blaze from spreading to surrounding buildings with residents in nearby homes forced to evacuate. 

New South Wales Fire and Rescue confirmed there were no injuries and everyone was accounted for.

Exclusion zones have been set up due to the risk of the wall collapsing.

Police said road closures were in place at Elizabeth Street between Frederick and Edwin Street North.
“No one is believed to be in the building, and adjacent buildings, including a petrol station, have been evacuated as a precaution,” it said.

Fire crews and police remain on scene
