UPDATE: Witness captures footage of mystery Gympie shed fire

UPDATE 4:30pm

WITNESS video footage has emerged of the shed fire at a Ray St property in Gympie this afternoon.

Flames are visible in the early stages of the video, and smoke can be seen billowing into the air throughout.

The fire started at approximately 3:24, but the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services communications supervisor said the cause of the blaze was unknown.

The supervisor said the fire was small and took around half an hour to be controlled by crews on the scene.

At least two trucks were on scene until the fire was officially declared under control by 4:01pm.

A Police vehicle attended the scene afterwards, while an Ambulance crew was also initially called.

A QAS Media spokesperson said Ambulance services were not required at the scene and their crew was cleared as a result.
