A DandenongRanges restaurant was totally destroyed after a fire overnight, 25 December.

CFA was called to the blaze just before 9.00pm where the Snooty Fox restaurant on Mt Dandenong Tourist Road at Olinda was fully involved in fire.

It took around 60 firefighters 30 minutes to bring the fire under control, however, the building was totally destroyed.

Crews remained on scene well into Christmas night cleaning up and were called again around 4.00am for a small reignition.

The Mt Dandenong Tourist Road either side of the Olinda township was closed for some time.
