Local volunteer firefighters were kept on their toes overnight, responding to two incidents in the Rockingham region.

Baldivis Volunteer Fire and Emergency Services were called out to a fire at a fish and chip shop on Pharlap Parade in Baldivis around 10.55pm on Saturday.

The fire was contained to the building.

It's believed to have started from a refrigerator. 

Karnup Volunteer Fire and Emergency Services were then called out to reports of a bushfire near Paganoni Road around 2.30am on Sunday.

"After a bit of searching we come across a vehicle in the bush that was well alight," a Facebook post read.

"Doing what we do best, we gained access to the property and extinguished the fire.

"Thank you to our volunteers for getting out of their warm beds in the early morning to assist." 

The cause is unknown.
