Fire ravaged a Bunbury property on Sunday evening causing $300,000 worth of damage to a Stone Street address.

Just after 9pm, three local fire and rescue crews were called the building in the light-industrial area.

Within 25 minutes the fire was contained to the northern-side of the structure but not controlled and by 10pm it was extinguished.

No one was inside at the time of the incident and its cause is understood to be “accidental”, according to the Department of Fire and Emergency Services.

Western Power and ATCO were called to isolate power and gas to the property, while WA Police helped to cordon off the area and assist firefighters with traffic management.

St John Ambulance were also at the scene, however, according to a spokeswoman were not required to treat anyone.
