It quickly spread to a nearby printing and packages company destroying more than half of both properties.

As firefighters battled the 4am blaze, locals desperately tried to remove flammable materials from the storage facilities.

At its height, 130 firefighters fought to control the flames and it was eventually extinguished after about three hours.

Although no one was injured during the blaze, the fire did destroy around 1,700sq.m of the total 2,600sq.m of factory.

The cause is currently under investigation.
