Local firefighters have had a busy time of it lately and they were at it again in the early hours of Thursday.

Rural Fire Service and Fire and Rescue units responded to a structure fire at a Jacks Creek Road property about 5.30am.

Narrabri Fire and Rescue Station Commander Shane Bradford said when firefighters arrived they saw a tin shed well ablaze.

Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus took on the fire, and it took them about one-and-a-half hours to bring under control.

The shed was all but destroyed.

Mr Bradford said it had been used for storage and as a workshop, and those contents had also been destroyed.
