Drumheller Fire Department crews are at the scene of a structure fire in Newcastle.

The blaze was reported around 7:30 a.m. from a home undergoing renovations on Newcastle Trail in the 900-Block.

Crews arrived to find a storage building at the back of the lot fully engulfed in flames.

The home owner, who asked not to be named, told Drum FM the building had been full and everything inside was lost. She did mention that a security camera tipped them off to the fire.

There is no damage estimate as yet and the cause of the fire has not been determined.

Motorists are advised to stay clear of Newcastle Trail this morning and use an alternate route.
