A fire that broke out last week at East Brisbane has been blamed on a fallen power pole.

Firefighters battled the fire which destroyed 3 businesses in East Brisbane with neighbours surrounding the scene taking to their rooftops to fight the flames themselves until emergency personnel arrived.

According to media reports it took 12 fire crews to get the ferocious blaze under control. Three businesses were destroyed in the process including a car parts shop.

Thankfully nobody was injured during the blaze.
