UPDATE: Fire destroys shed and farming equipment

UPDATE: A LARGE shed and all of its contents has been completely destroyed after fire ripped through it yesterday.

Fire crews were called to a Langbeckers East Rd property in Woongarra just after 5pm.

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Services spokeswoman said two urban crews and two rural crews fought the blaze.

"It was under control within the hour and then we worked to protect exposure and continued extinguishing the flames," the spokeswoman said.

"Unfortunately, we have gone back this morning to find the shed completely destroyed as well as all of the contents inside including farming equipment, fertilisers, chemicals and more."

The cause of the fire is not yet known but is not being investigated by police.
