Investigations will continue today into a fire that destroyed parts of a Lal Lal business on Saturday.

Fire crews were called to the demolition business on the corner of Eaglesons Road and Clarendon-Lal Lal Road around 4pm on Saturday afternoon.

It took over an hour for the eight CFA vehicles to get the blaze under control, which destroyed a single-storey building. 

The building fire wasn't the only blaze fire crews attended over the weekend either.

Between Friday night and midday on Sunday there were three separate car fires at Tablot St South, Elsworth St in Mount Pleasant, and Coronet Street in Wendouree, with police also investigating the incidents.

There has now been more than 30 car fires in Ballarat this year, averaging close to one a week.
