$1m damage in factory fire

An accidental fire caused $1 million damage to a smallgoods warehouse in the southern suburbs last night.

Firefighters were called to Westphalia Gourmet Fine Foods on Capel Court in Bentley about 6.45pm.

The fire started after ash from a meat smoker was poured into a plastic bin.

The flames spread to switchboard equipment and cool rooms.

It was extinguished by 7.30pm.
