Firefighters Battle Fierce Inferno as Dark Smoke Blankets Hoppers Crossing Area

A structure fire resulted in the destruction of a storage shed housing hundreds of litres of paint thinner, leading to the emergence of dark smoke covering sections of Hoppers Crossing and Point Cook.

On Wednesday morning, thick black smoke emanated from Total Trailers, a factory located in Hoppers Crossing, where firefighting teams were engaged in combatting the inferno.

Around 9 a.m., a total of eight firefighting teams, comprising 30 firefighters from FRV and CFA, rushed to the scene to confront a storage shed engulfed in flames.

According to a spokesperson from FRV, the shed contained approximately 1000 litres of paint thinner stored in drums.

Before the arrival of the firefighting units, fifteen individuals successfully evacuated without any injuries.

Firefighters promptly contained the fire, averting its spread to adjacent properties and the stacks of truck tyres surrounding the shed, effectively bringing it under control within 30 minutes.

An investigation into the fire’s origins is currently underway by both WorkSafe and the EPA, while a community advisory message has been issued due to the presence of smoke in the vicinity. Additionally, Victoria Police and Ambulance Victoria were present at the scene, with FRV personnel continuing to remain on-site.
