More than 20 FRV firefighters responded to a factory fire in Rowville on Wednesday night.

Crews arrived at the Henderson Road scene shortly before 9pm, finding the factory well alight.

Firefighters attacked the fire from multiple fronts, wearing breathing apparatus to enter the single-story building and deploying several aerial units to contain the blaze from above.

The fire was brought under control within five minutes of arrival.

Crews remained on scene overnight to fully extinguish the fire and put out any remaining hot spots.

FRV was supported by CFA firefighters in the response.

Ambulance Victoria also attended the incident and treated one person.

Firefighters believe the fire may have started under suspicious circumstances, and have handed the scene to Victoria Police to investigate.
