More than 50 firefighters have battled a large factory blaze in Campbellfield, which has since been deemed suspicious.

On December 28, crews were called to Aluminium Tread Plate in Sarah Street, Campbellfield, just before 5am.

The tilt slab constructed factory, measuring 30 x 20 metres, sustained extensive fire damage.  25% of the premises have been destroyed whilst the remainder has been heavily smoke damaged. 

On arrival firefighters found the front of the office area fully involved in fire which had penetrated the walls and was spreading into the factory.  Two fully laden B-Double trucks, which were parked in the factory, have also been extensively damaged.

The fire took 40 minutes to bring under control, and MFB crews remained on scene the following morning to ensure there were no flare ups. 15 appliances, with approximately 55 firefighters, including some from CFA, attended the fire.

The fire has been deemed suspicious and police will investigate.
