Fire crews scrambled to isolate petrol tanks at a Bay of Plenty service station fire overnight.
Emergency services were called to the blaze at the Caltex station on Main Road at Katikati just before 2am, northern communications spokesman Jarron Philips said.
The station's 40m by 40m workshop was well alight when crews arrived.
"The petrol tanks had to be isolated - there was some concern of the extreme heat from the workshop fire."
The fire was not thought to be suspicious, but fire investigators would arrive at the scene later today to determine the cause.
It took two hours to control the blaze and crews were still dampening down hotspots, Mr Philips said.
No other properties were damaged and there were no injuries, he said.
