Fire contained to the building

Just after 6pm this evening, MFB received fire calls for smoke and flames issuing from a factory in Williamstown North.

On arrival crews found the building well alight. The roof of the building collapsed during the fire and there were concerns about the integrity of a wall, so crews were withdrawn to fight the fire externally.
A community warning was issued asking people to avoid the area and to be aware of smoke in the immediate vicinity. 
The fire was contained to the building with MFB firefighters protecting adjoining premises.
Thirteen appliances and over 50 firefighters tackled the blaze, which was deemed under control in just over an hour. Crews will remain on scene throughout the night. 
The cause of the fire will be investigated in the morning.
