Firefighters saved the Anglesea golf club house from extensive damage after a fire broke out in an adjoining building early this morning.

Seven CFA trucks from Anglesea, Torquay, Aireys Inlet and Corio were called to the Gold Links Road golf club about 1.45am.

District 7 RDO Kevin Mann said on scene firefighters worked quickly to prevent the fire spreading to the main club house.

“It was a quick save because the adjoining building was fully involved when they arrived,” he said.

The fire was brought under control about 2.40am, but the smaller building, possibly used for storage, was destroyed.

A fire investigator will be on scene this morning to establish a cause, but the fire isn’t believed to be suspicious.
