A rubbish pile fire in a shed at a recycling plant at Goolwa Beach caused about $30,000 worth of damage on Wednesday night, May 15.

Country Fire Service (CFS) and Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) crews were called to the recycling depot on Port Elliot Road just after 8pm.

Firefighters from Goolwa, Currency Creek, Middleton, Port Elliot, Mount Compass, Victor Harbor and Seaford were among those who attended the scene.

A CFS spokeswoman said about $30,000 damage was caused to the shed, and crews remained on scene until midnight to make sure the fire was fully extinguished.

"CFS and MFS crews stopped the fire spreading to other assets and the affected shed is still standing," she said.

The cause of the fire is unknown and there were no injuries.
