A shed containing hay bales, vehicles and other machinery has gone up in flames west of Gympie.

Four fire crews raced to a property on Goomeri West Road, Goomeri at around 7.15 last night.

They arrived to find a large, hay shed well-involved in flames.

Another three crews were called to help, while a tractor began removing bales of hay from the shed.

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Services spokesperson says it took until after midnight to put the fire out and dampen down hot spots.

All areas were checked and deemed safe by 12.30am, with fire crews leaving the scene a short time later.
