Stock feed up in flames as shed catches fire in South Townsville


A digger has been called in to pull apart burning piles of stock feed, after a shed went up in flames in South Townsville early this morning.

Five fire crews helped extinguish the flames, after arriving at the Archer Street property around 12.20am.

They initially had some difficulty accessing the premises.

Crews had the fire under control around 3am but continued to dampen down hotspots as the digger pulled pallets of stock feed out of the shed.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services handed the property back to the owner and left the scene just before 6am.
