The blaze turned out to be in two former greenhouses which had been roofed for some time and were being used for storage. Two water tender fire appliances and a total of nine firefighters attended.
Incident commander Matt Roger said black smoke could be seen billowing as the crews were on their way to the fire.
‘Our primary consideration was to make the area safe to make sure there was no risk to the surrounding property,’ he said.
Firefighters used what Mr Roger said was a defensive approach.
‘We removed some gas cylinders and the property owner reported hearing a couple of pops,’ said Mr Roger.
It is understood that a former flower storage unit was among the contents of the structure which was burned to the ground.
‘It took us about 20 minutes to get the fire under control but we will be here a lot longer damping things down,’ he said.
