A Cambellfield factory has been seriously damaged by fire overnight.

MFB crews were called to the blaze in Clarissa Street about 2.20am.

On arrival they found the central office area fully alight.

Firefighters had difficulty gaining access to the fire and were required to cut through two side doors allowing firefighters to attack the fire internally. An aerial appliance was also used at the front of the building to bring the fire under control in 40 minutes.

The office area sustained severe fire damage.  A building surveyor from the Hume City council attended to check the structural integrity of the factory roof which had been affected by the fire.

MFB crews will remain on scene for most of the morning.

Damage is estimated to exceed $450,000, the fire has been deemed suspicious.

Police and AV attended.
