4 lorries were damaged in the industrial unit fire
More than 30 firefighters were called out to an industrial unit near Havant last night.
Crews were called to Larchwood Avenue, Bedhampton to find a well-developed fire in a single-storey building.
Two lorries involved in the blaze were severely damaged while another two were badly damaged by smoke.
An investigation into the cause of the blaze is continuing.
Though gas cylinders were reported at the premises, it was quickly established they were not involved in the fire and they were removed from the scene by firefighters.
Station Manager Dave Graham said: "Once acetylene cylinders were reported we quickly entered the premises and were able to remove them safely.
"We worked closely with our colleagues in the police, who assisted us with traffic management in the surrounding area."
Control room operators fielded more than 30 999 calls from the public due to the location's proximity to the A3(M) and the nearby Asda supermarket.
The 25m x 20m unit containing the vehicles was damaged by smoke, as were three other adjacent units. The fire was extinguished by 21.20.
