Industrial shed fire at Basket Range causes $100,000 damage

At 5:40 this evening CFS crews were alerted to a shed fire in Basket Range by a 000 caller.

35 CFS firefighters with 6 trucks and a command car attended, and on arrival found a large industrial shed with solar panels on fire.  Much of the workshop section of the shed was damaged but a farm office was saved.

No one was injured and the cause of the fire is expected to be related to battery chargers that were in use in the workshop.

This fire has caused approximately $100,000 worth of damage.
