FIREFIGHTERS have brought a large fire under control that broke out at the Workshops Rail Museum at Ipswich last night.
Queensland Fire and Rescue crews were at the scene of the fire on North St, North Ipswich, which started about 6.20pm.
An old administration and an old engineer's building were destroyed, but crews brought the blaze under control by 8pm. A third building was also damaged.
At the height of the fire, 14 fire crews amounting to almost 50 fire fighters battled 30m flames.
Police blocked off surrounding streets despite no immediate threats to properties.
They warned residents to stay indoors and not breathe in smoke, as asbestos was believed to be in the buildings.
Ipswich City Council last night tweeted the fire was in disused buildings due for demolition and "our history should be safe''.
