A person has suffered burns after a shed fire in Parkvale tonight.

A fire service spokesperson said they received multiple calls about a shed fire on Alverstoke Rd about 9.20pm and cordons were in place at the intersection with Alverstoke Rd and Fraser St.

The ambulance service had been called because someone had suffered burns, he said.

The shed was thought to be about 10 metres by four metres and was well involved by the time fire crews arrived.


Three fire trucks and12 firefighters were at the scene.

An Alverstoke resident, who did not want to be identified said he could see lots of smoke, police cars and fire appliances in the street.

He said the callout was close to the Fraser Street end of the house and members of the public were out on the street watching what was happening.

"There are people out and about," the man said.

"At the moment there's lots of smoke, no flames."

A police media spokeswoman said cordons were in place at the intersection of Alverstoke Rd and Fraser Rd.

The woman said police were originally called to assist fire at 9.30pm.

A St John Ambulance spokesperson said they had been called to the scene but did not need to transport anyone to hospital.

"That indicates it was either a very minor injury or a non-injury (event)"
