The apparently abandoned Murwillumbah Bowling Club was ablaze on Friday with emergency services on the scene to extinguish the flames.

As smoke rose from the main area of the club emergency service arrived at around 3pm.

NSW Police say they were notified of a fire at the location, however it is not under investigation by police. It is now a matter for the owners of the building.
