UPDATE 12.30AM

THE fire was extinguished at 12.15am and three relief crews will remain at the scene into the morning.

There was an estimated 5,000 litres of kerosene in a fuel tank which will continue to burn off safely. 

Station Manager Craig McLellan said: “Crews worked incredibly hard and made really good progress to contain the fire to the outbuilding.

“A further investigation will take place with the owners of the site in the morning, but we do not believe the cause to be suspicious at this stage.”
