A garden shed and a number of shipping containers being used for storage were destroyed in a grass fire at Ellesmere on Tuesday afternoon.

Three urban and six rural crews were called to the blaze, on Kumbia Road, about 2:45pm.

A QFES spokesperson said they found multiple shipping containers and about 5ha of grassland on fire when they arrived.

The fire was under control by 3:30pm.

Firefighters then continued to damp down the area to stop any embers flaring up, before declaring the fire extinguished at 5:00pm.
