Suspicious fire at Alphington paper mill forces closure of Chandler Highway
UPDATE: The Chandler Highway has been re-opened after a suspicious fire at the old Alphington paper mill.
But motorists can expect lengthy delays during Thursday’s morning peak.
Emergency services were called to the mill just after 4am to find a few pallets on fire.
Due to access issues, it took around 50 minutes to bring the fire under control.
Police are treating it suspiciously.
