Firefighters called to a structure fire in Braybrook this evening took less than 20 minutes to bring it under control.

Initial crews were deployed to the Kenneth Street address at 6pm and arrived just six minutes later.

They quickly got to work and were able to contain the blaze to a four metre by three metre shed at the rear of a property.

Efficient work by the attending crews ensured the fire was declared under control at 6:25pm.

Firefighters wearing protective breathing apparatus conducted an internal search of the building for any occupants. Thankfully, there was no one located inside. 

One person is being assessed by Ambulance Victoria paramedics.

The fire generated a lot of smoke, and the community are asked to avoid the area.

Firefighters believe the fire may have started under suspicious circumstances, and are working with Victoria Police on scene.

Approximately 20 firefighters attended this incident, along with four pumper appliances, a rescue unit, and a command unit.
