Tasmanian Fire Service crews remain at the scene of a

structure fire on Charles Street, Moonah.

TFS crews responded to a Triple Zero call just after 3pm alerting them to a double storey brick warehouse on fire.

Firefighters were withdrawn from the building due to concerns about its structural integrity, and the snorkel was then used to attack the fire from above.

The fire is now contained and the building is extensively damaged.

TFS crews will maintain a fire watch overnight and will conduct a fire investigation first thing tomorrow morning to determine the cause.
