    Australian firefighters extinguishing a blaze in a small factory in Sydney’s south-eastern suburb were forced to flee the building minutes before it had collapsed, local media reported Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Earlier in the day, emergency services were dispatched to the industrial complex on Botany Road, according to the 9News web portal.

    The fierce fire most likely started in the building's upper levels and rapidly collapsed the roof.

    The incident has already caused major traffic disruptions, with the drivers being advised to avoid the area and find other, more convenient routes.
