FIRE DAMAGED two trucks just after midnight at a South Lismore truck repair business.

Lismore fire station received a call at 12.10am about a truck alight at a South Lismore business.

Two tankers were dispatched, with the first tanker arriving on the scene within eight minutes to discover one truck parked near Laurie Predebon Truck repairs was well alight.

A Fire and Rescue NSW spokesman said two minutes after arriving at the scene fire fighters radioed that the fire had spread to a second truck which was alight.

The spokesman said the two fire crews had the blaze, which had consumed a pantec truck and a tip-truck, under control within minutes.

Once the fire was under control the spokesman said fire fighters climbed inside the pantec to check that it had not spread to the contents in the rear of the truck.

It is understood one of the trucks was being stored at Laurie Predebon Truck Repairs and the other truck had been repaired.

Fire fighters reported no damage to any buildings from the fire.

Police arrived just as the blaze was being extinguished and are investigating.

Anyone with any information on the fire is asked to call Lismore police on 6626 0599 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
