Former abattoir fire may have been deliberately lit

SCENIC Rim firefighters were called to the former AJ Busch abattoir building at Bromelton early this morning.

It is thought squatters or juveniles deliberately lit a small fire in the basement of the building about midnight.

Several crews were called in from Beaudesert and neighbouring Kooralbyn, however the fire was out and only smouldering when they arrived.

Crews were concerned about some possible dangerous chemicals at the scene, and called in the scientific team.

Scenic Rim Commander Inspector Chris Robinson said there was little to no damage and no injuries.

Firefighters left the scene about 7.30am.
