Firefighters are battling a house fire near a busy shopping district in Ferntree Gully.

CFA crews were first called to the blaze in The Avenue about 10.40am.

Lisa, who works at nearby Chemist Warehouse, told 3AW the house is fully involved.

Another listener, Cath, told Neil Mitchell “it’s blanketing very thick smoke” across the area.

At this stage, the shops have not been evacuated.
