While the fire initially started on a rubbish mound where mattresses and building materials were dumped, it quickly engulfed a nearby building which housed a number of gas cylinders prompting major safety concerns.

As a large volume of smoke was being produced by the burning rubbish, nearby residents were being advised to shut all doors and windows as a precaution.
