Firefighters were called to a fire at a golf club this morning.

On arrival crews reported that a two-storey outbuilding used by the groundsman of the club, measuring around 20 square metres, was 20% alight.

By 7am firefighters had surrounded the building and the officer in charge reported the fire was under control.

At 8.19am, crews had extinguished the fire and used thermal imaging cameras to ensure there were no remaining hotspots within its timber structure.

The building, which included office facilities and a gym, has been badly damaged.

A full investigation into the cause of the fire will take place today.
