Having been called to the scene at 4.36pm, firefighters remained on site for approximately an hour in order to put out hot spots so that further fires would not occur.

Crews received reports of a blaze at 9.16am and attended the scene, where they used tactical ventilation to bring the fire under control by 10.05am.
