Firefighters were called to reports of a fire in an industrial storage container, believed to contain waste building materials and other waste.


A plume of smoke was issuing from the container, so the incident commander issued an early warn and inform message to nearby properties advising residents to close windows and doors as a precaution.

Crews used a fog spike and cold-cut firefighting system to reduce the temperature inside the container before fully extinguishing the blaze.

There are no reports of any injuries and the cause of the fire has not been established.
