An investigation is underway into the cause of a huge fire that's done more than $3 million damage at Forest in the state's northwest.

Five local brigades and six tankers responded to the early-morning call to a 60x60 shed on fire at a civil contracting firm.

The flames destroyed mining equipment and other materials, also spreading to timber piles outside the structure on Mengha Road.

The Fire Service says the shed has been left with "significant damage".
