His team may have to work till night and morning. An eyewitness said parts of the building collapsed as the fire broke out on the street.

Due to the fire, the electricity system on the road came to a standstill in this area. Fire and Rescue said that they received several triple zero calls after 4 pm. Flames engulfed the seven-story building on Randall Street in Surry Hills. A portion of the building collapsed and the flames spread to nearby residential houses.
