A fire caused $2 million damage to a Malaga factory overnight.

Firefighters were called to the Beringarra Avenue factory about 10.30pm.

It took 25 firefighters about an hour to get the fire under control.

A Department of Fire and Emergency Services spokesman said firefighting efforts were hampered by dangerous goods.

He said sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid and hydrochloric acid were stored on the site.

Damage was contained to a single factory unit.

Crews are still at the scene. The cause of the fire is not yet known.
