'Serious fire' at La Collette Esso fuel compound
An area where fuel tankers were stored was made safe but the fire destroyed most of the workshop.
The fire service said there were several minor explosions but it was brought under control by 04:40 BST.
The fire is not believed to be suspicious and an investigation will be carried out later, the service added.
