A car-wrecking business in Elliott Street, Lismore, has burned out this morning.

It is the second fire to hit Lismore businessman Matt Bidner in a week. On 10 February his tow-truck business went up in smoke.

Echonetdaily understands that the fire started just after 4am, with five cars and 300 tyres catching alight in the blaze.

One witness said a shed on the property was ‘glowing’ when fire trucks arrived.

Firefighters had to use foam to quell the blaze and a HAZMAT unit was called to the scene.

Police are investigating the cause of the blaze and a possible link to last week’s fire.
