A shed and all its contents were completely destroyed in a fire on a property in Orange on Wednesday evening, a blaze which Fire and Rescue NSW needed some time and resource to control and then extinguish.
Crews were called to the scene on Rossi Drive, in Clifton Grove, just after 5pm on Wednesday evening and two trucks were initially dispatched from the Orange station, with more appliances called in to assist as the fire was fought.
They were actually pulled from a separate call-out on Nelson Place once they had extinguished that rubbish fire and while they were of obvious assistance in the wake of the blaze, the shed burn had largely been put out by the time they arrived.
Without specifics, the shed was said to contain a range of miscellaneous items but it was confirmed to hold a heavy fuel load - essentially items conducive to fire - that were completely destroyed, with the structure severely damaged too.
NSW Rural Fire Service crews also arrived at the scene later to assist while police and ambulance crews were also dispatched to the call-out.

The police are said to still be investigating the blaze, with no confirmation available as to whether the fire is being deemed suspicious or otherwise.
