FIRE AT OLD FREMANTLE PANEL BEATERS
A fire that broke out last evening at 6.30 at the long-established Fairway Panel Beaters at South Terrace, Fremantle has done substantial damage to the building. Local residents had to be evacuated because of toxic fumes and asbestos fears.
The business has been owned by brothers Brian and Robert Richardson for 46 years, so it is quite a shock to the family.
Workers turned up this morning not knowing if they still had a job, but the general sentiment was that it is great no one was hurt and the business can be rebuilt. I wish them well!
