Emergency services attended the scene a fire in Bulli this morning, which closed the Princes Highway and caused considerable delays for motorists.
The blaze is believed to have started in a shed at the back of an antique shop on the Princes Highway, near Station Street, around 8am.
Fire and Rescue NSW Inspector John Hawes said the "amazing amount of items in the shed" had hampered efforts to extinguish the fire, which was "burning fiercely".
"It's making firefighting efforts quite difficult," Inspector Hawes said, adding the shed was around 10 metres by 10 metres.
Fire crews from Corrimal, Bulli and Thirroul attended the scene.
"It's too early to determine what started [the fire]," Inspector Hawes said.
He said no-one was injured in the blaze.
The Princes Highway was closed to motorists for around an hour this morning, causing lengthy delays and heavy traffic in the area.
Lila Upton, who owns the neighbouring Bulli Historical Art Gallery, said her building did not sustain any damage during the fire.
