Around 90 CFA firefighters battled a major blaze in the floor space of a trampoline leisure centre at Seaford, which has left one man in hospital.

Crews were called to the 80 x 40 metre centre in Oliphant Way around 1.30am to find a fire, believed to have started in a foam pit, burning well.

A worker was transported to hospital. A firefighter was also transported to hospital but has already been released.

It was brought under control around 5.15am. The cause is believed to have been when welding near a foam pit.
