A passerby feared a shed fire that ignited at an Orrvale property on Saturday morning placed nearby properties at risk.
Fire crews, police and Powercor were called to the Sunshine Dve property just after 10.30am, after residents alerted the authorities.
The fire, which ignited about 10am, caused a thick, black smoke to fill the area, but was quickly contained.
A resident, who did not want to be named, said the fire was ‘‘big and terrifying’’ and had neighbours worried it could spread to nearby properties.
The fire was quickly extinguished and the damage was isolated to the shed and no-one was injured.
It is not being treated as suspicious.
