A fiery inferno engulfed Ready Towing in Rocklea, obliterating over 25 vehicles and causing an estimated $200,000 in damage.

The blaze, believed to have originated under the bonnet of a Volkswagon involved in a prior crash, sparked a swift response from seven fire crews. Mark Ready, Director of Ready Towing Group, lauded the firefighters’ rapid action, crediting them with saving countless other vehicles stored on the premises.

While Queensland Police also utilises the yard for vehicle storage, no police property was affected. Authorities are investigating the incident, but early indications suggest no suspicious circumstances.
