FIREFIGHTERS were called to MD Shipping Services Flat House Quay, Prospect Road, at Portsmouth dockyard, in the early hours of this morning.

Three crews from Southsea, one crew from Cosham and the special equipment unit from Cosham were called to the incident at 1.55am.

A cooling unit inside the warehouse where the bananas are loaded off the boats had overheated and logged the building with smoke.

Fire crews used fans to clear the building of smoke and make the scene safe.
