Second industrial fire in Adelaide

An Adelaide factory blaze has tested firefighters for the second day in a row, this time at a fuel business.

It took more that 55 firefighters to bring the blaze under control in sweltering weather.

It was burning inside a large storage facility at a fuel business in Wingfield, close to where a fire broke out at a waste facility on Sunday.

In the latest blaze firefighters used excavators to separate piles of burning material and stop the flames spreading.

Metropolitan Fire Service Commander Chris Smith said the fire could have been much worse if it had not been for the storage facility’s alarm and sprinkler system.

The Adelaide metropolitan area is one of two South Australian regions not included in a fire ban ordered by the Country Fire Service as temperatures top 40C.
