The cause of a fire at a business at Hindmarsh overnight remains undetermined.

Just after 9.30pm on Saturday 26 December, patrols were called to a printing business in Orsmond Street, where a number of MFS crews were battling a large blaze. It took several hours for the fire to be brought under control which caused significant structural damage to the building and adjoining properties.

Fire Cause Investigators attended the scene and have established the fire started in the rear workshop causing around $2,000,000 damage. Due to the structural instability of the premises, investigators have been unable to safely conduct a full internal examination. The cause of the fire remains undetermined and investigations are continuing.

Orsmond Street was closed between South Road and George Street but it has reopened to all traffic. The car park at the back of Hindmarsh Bowden Health situated on Port Road, is currently closed as the rear wall of the printing business is structurally compromised and may collapse.
