Fifteen people have been evacuated after a St Kilda shop caught fire this morning.

The Fitzroy Street shop, with apartments above, erupted into flames at about 7.20am.

Seventeen firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze.

It appears the front window of the shop was firebombed.

The blaze is being treated as suspicious.

Southbound lanes on Fitzroy Street are closed to traffic at Canterbury Road.
