A Wantirna South childcare centre was destroyed by fire last night.

CFA was called to the Old Orchard Drive property about 10.40pm. It took crews about 20 minutes to control the fire, but the house, which had been converted into a childcare facility, was totally destroyed.

District 13 Operations Officer Colin Brown said investigations with EnergySafe Victoria would continue today, but it was believed an electrical fault in some computer equipment caused the fire.

Seven CFA trucks from Bayswater, Boronia and Scoresby attended and remained on scene until 1.30am mopping up.
