ATET floating nightclub in Melbourne Fire: Docklands club bursts into flames after noise complaints
An exclusive floating nightclub in Melbourne has burst into flames in a “suspicious” fire after neighbors complained about the noise.
Police are investigating the cause of the fire at ATET after a ball of flames erupted from the club’s roof around 4.30am on Tuesday.
The club, which is moored in North Wharf in Docklands, only opened in August but has been marred by noise complaints since it opened.
A Victoria Police spokesman told NCA NewsWire that emergency services were called to the fire after bystanders spotted the blaze on Bolte Bridge.
He said no one was on the boat when crews arrived.

Fire Rescue Victoria commander Mitch Simons told 3AW the fire was being treated as “suspicious” because it broke out too late and there had been a number of noise complaints the venue was facing.
Firefighters were able to bring the fire under control within six minutes, but the damage was extensive.
The club was open Thursdays and Fridays from 4pm to 11pm and Saturdays from 10am to 1am on Sundays.

The floating nightclub had been putting on a sold-out show on Saturday and was docked when the fire broke out.
Police are investigating the cause of the fire and anyone with information is urged to contact Crimestoppers.
ATET was contacted by NCA Newswire for comment.
