Fire destroys Cranbourne East after-school care facility

Fire crews have contained a fire that was burning out of control at a retirement home in Melbourne's southeast.

The fire started when one of the buildings caught fire at about 1pm at the Blue Hills Retirement Village in Cranbourne East.

A Victoria Police spokeswoman confirmed to SBS News the incident was happening on Berwick-Cranbourne Road.

The fire is not yet under control, but everyone has been evacuated and account for, a CFA spokesperson told 9NEWS.

The Senate noted that the MPC was made up of 12 members, comprising seven from the private sector and five inside the CBN. It also noted that now , only three of them were valid, since the tenure of others expired last December.

Emergency services, including eight crews from the CFA and police, are now on-scene and still fighting the flames.

CFA operations officer Paul Summons said investigations into the cause have started. It looks quite likely that the fire has begun somewhere in the roof space.

Fire broke out at an after-school care facility in Melbourne's south-east, sending flames soaring from the roof of the building on Wednesday afternoon.

It's unclear what sparked the fire.
