Fire in Sydney: Huge blaze erupts on Randle St, Surry Hills

Massive fire engulfs building in Sydney’s CBD as a huge plume of black smoke rises over the city near Central Station

A building has set on fire in Sydney’s CBD, sending thick plumes of smoke into the air.

The massive fire has since spread to a second building and threatens a residential apartment building nearby.

On Thursday afternoon, a shocking vision appeared in which the building on Randle Lane, on the corner of Elizabeth Street in Surry Hills, was on fire.

The fire appears to have taken hold in nearly every room of the complex, which sits between dozens of apartment buildings.

A witness said: ‘We have all been evacuated. The smoke turned to fire so quickly. It was an empty building we think.

“The size of the flames is unbelievable and the heat that comes out. Horrible. It must be affecting our building across the road now, but we’ve moved so far away we can’t see a thing.’

Firefighters remain on scene and are trying to bring the fire under control.

Daily Mail Australia understands that the entire roof has been destroyed so far and there are concerns among workers in the area that the fire will spread to surrounding buildings.
