After standing for 149 years the former Majorca general store has been destroyed by fire.

CFA crews from Carisbrook, Talbot and Maryborough were called to the intersection of Majorca Street and Talbots Road around 1.40pm on Wednesday (27 May).

Firefighters in 4 tankers and 1 pumper worked to prevent the blaze from spreading further, but the historic building couldn't be saved.

There were concerns about the structural integrity of the surviving walls, so an excavator was used to bring them down to head height.

Fire investigators have visited the scene and are proving whether an electrical fault is the cause.

Nobody was injured in the blaze.
