FENZ would not confirm what the premises was, but Lapwood Drive is a short street containing both Tku Proteins Ltd, a meat processing plant, an animal by-product rendering plant.

There were nine fire crews on site shortly after 9pm, and a further two trucks on the way, the spokesman said.

There were no reports of anyone inside the building at the time the fire started, and no injuries reported, FENZ said.

The building measures 50 metres by 40 metres.
