'˜We were called out at 11pm and were at the scene until about 3am this morning.

'˜At the moment, we're not sure what caused the fire.'

A spokeswoman from Cosham Fire Station says that the main concern was keeping nearby cylinders from catching fire.

She said: '˜Next to it there were some cylinders that had become very hot from the fire, so we had to monitor them.

'˜It was quite a big job but only because we had to wait for those containers to cool down.'

Nobody was injured in the blaze.
