Rescue Care’s Garrith Jamieson says strong winds are hampering efforts to put out the fire.

“Firefighters tried to battle the blaze. However, with the strong winds that were present and are still present this fire has spread extensively throughout this whole building. Paramedics are standing by in case of any reports of injuries.”
