Several animals have died after a pet shop in south Brisbane went up in flames in what could be a suspicious fire, according to police.

Emergency services were called to Kingston Square Shopping Center in Slacks Creek just after 9 p.m. Wednesday evening.

Firefighters brought the fire under control at 10:30 p.m. but were due to return to the site on Thursday along with the police who declared the area a crime scene.

“It seems that some animals have been lost … which is very sad,” said the spokesman.

Toxic smoke gases meant that the police had no access on Wednesday evening.
