Fire broke out in a cinema on the fourth floor of the Melbourne Central shopping complex in the heart of the city this morning.
Metropolitan Fire Brigade commander Peter Doyle said the fire began in an electrical switchboard at about 5am this morning.
"There's considerable smoke, heat and water damage, mainly to the cinema, and water damage to the lower floors," commander Doyle said.
The cinema is under construction in the Melbourne Central complex.
It has not yet been leased to any cinema company and is managed by the Lend Lease Corporation, Mr Doyle said. A Lend Lease representative was not immediately available for comment.
There were no injuries reported at the site.
Train operator Connex said services were bypassing Melbourne Central Station because of the fire. It is not known for how long the station will be closed.
A Connex spokeswoman said there was "no damage at all" to the train line, and scheduled stops at other stations would not be affected.
She said the trains had not been rerouted, but were simply passing by the station at the request of the fire brigade.
