QFES station officer Neil Goodman said they were called to reports of a car fire and when fire fighters arrive it was well-involved.

"We initiated procedures with extinguishers and using the on-site hydrant system due to the lack of access for our pumpers far too big to reach the top of the complex," he said.

Fire fighters had the blaze under control in about 20 minutes and the car suffered extensive damage.
