Flames from a kitchen fire at the Groove Train Restaurant at Pacific Werribee resulted in evacuations earlier today.
FRV firefighters were called to the shopping centre on Heaths Road, Hoppers Crossing just after 3pm this afternoon.
Crews from Tarneit and Point Cook arrived on scene to find a fire in the kitchen of the restaurant.
The incident was declared under control within 11 minutes however crews remained on scene for several hours to ensure the building was safe and that the fire had not spread into the roof space.
Firefighters have now left and the scene has been handed over to building management and the local council.
