Fire has destroyed an outbuilding of a wedding reception complex in Langwarrin overnight.

Eight crews from Frankston, Langwarrin, Cranbourne, Baxter and Pearcedale were called to the property on Dandenong-Hastings Road about 3am.

CFA District 8 RDO Jim Dore said crews arrived to find a 20m x 5m structure fully involved in flames.

“Due to the location, access to water was limited so crews had to bring in extra tankers to fight the fire,” he said.

“Crews also wore breathing apparatus for their safety,” he said.

Fire investigators are attending the scene this morning to determine a cause.
