Battery charger may be behind $2m Esperance Port blaze

A battery charger is the possible cause of a $2million fire that gutted an electrical storage shed at Esperance Port early this morning.

Firefighters were called to the blaze around 1am to find the building fully engulfed in flames.

A Department of Fire and Emergency Services spokesman said the source of the fire may be a battery charger, however fire investigators were heading to the scene on Wednesday to make a final determination on what sparked the blaze.

Southern Ports CEO Steve Lewis said the fire escalated resulting in the destruction of the shed.

“No personnel were injured as a result of the fire,” he said.

“All relevant authorities have been advised and an investigation into the cause of the incident is currently underway.”

Mr Lewis said the blaze had not affected port operations.
