Forklifts moving empty aerosol cans sparked an industrial fire at Kilburn that destroyed a heavy-duty vehicle and caused $300,000 damage.

According to Adelaide Now, more than 30 firefighters responded to the blaze at Veolia Environmental Services on Churchill Rd, Kilburn at 10.15am on Saturday.

Cans exploded and plumes of smoke could be seen across the northern suburbs as the fire burned.

Fire officials say water and foam were used to extinguish the outside fire.

Environment Protection Authority officers will inspect the site to perform atmospheric monitoring, but officials said there is no threat to the public.
