A Queensland Fire and Rescue spokeswoman said the blaze was extinguished at 11.40am, with crews remaining to put out any spot fires that emerged.

A Queensland Police spokesman said officers remained on scene to assist the fire investigation unit into the cause of the blaze.

The property is earmarked for a massive development which will span almost the entire block and include five residential and hotel towers.
