A huge scaffolding fire has broken on Macquarie Street in Sydney’s CBD.

The flames spread all the way up the side of the high-rise building, just across the road from Parliament House.

Firefighters have brought the blaze under control and helped evacuate at least 20 people, saying “no injuries have been reported”.

Listener Shane phoned Alan Jones saying he saw the fire start just before 8am and tried to put it out.

“I saw a small fire that had started on the external scaffold.

“It didn’t look that big at the time so I grabbed the fire extinguisher and went up inside the staircase of the scaffold and tried to sort of attack the fire.

“But quite quickly it just got out of control and I very quickly got out of there.”
