A FIRE tore through a shed, believed to have contained a quantity of marijuana, at The Summit yesterday morning.

Fire crews and police were called to the Tennant Rd property at 4.37am to find the structure ablaze, possibly because of an electrical fault caused by an overloaded powerpoint.

Detective Sergeant Damian Grace from the Stanthorpe Criminal Investigation Branch said police were investigating the case.

"We're still investigating certain items that were found at the scene of the fire," Detective Sgt Grace said.

"A 37-year-old male is helping police with investigations."

An officer from the Toowoomba Scenes of Crime office and a Queensland Fire and Rescue Service investigator from the Dalby district are still trying to determine the cause of the fire.

The shed is believed to have been a temporary residence with chemicals, a car and personal items inside the shed at the time of the fire.

No one was injured during the blaze.

Anyone with information is encouraged to phone Stanthorpe Police on 4681 6400 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
