Crews were called to a fire in Dow Avenue Irymple involving four trucks at 5am this morning after reports of explosions were heard.

Six crews from Irymple, Mildura and Red Cliffs Brigades responded and used breathing apparaus to fight the fire.

While there were no reported injuries, three of the four prime movers were completely destroyed, plus two of the five trailers were also destroyed. The remaining prime movers and trailers also sustained damage.

Later in the morning (8am) crews were called back to the scene, as one of the fuel tanks started leaking.
