Investigations are underway into the cause of a multi-million dollar fire at a Mordialloc fibreglass company which makes parts for trucks.
The Bolwell factory in Wells Road went up in flames shortly after 6am.
It took 80 firefighters about 90 minutes to bring the blaze under control.
Ken Crouch, who has been with the company for 18 years, was one of 30 workers safely evacuated.
He told 3AW News he was in the factory when the blaze started.
“Where I was working I heard two explosions,” he said.
“I walked out the back door and saw a roof on fire and had to evacuate.
“(The fire) went up through the roof, it took off.”
Meanwhile, “toxic” smoke spread quickly.
