Police say a fire at the maximum security Port Phillip Prison this morning was not suspicious.

The fire started in a computer server room at the Truganina facility about 1.30am.

Inmates were put into lockdown, but authorities say the fire was a long way from the cells.

Firefighters have had to break into the area to attack the fire.

Ross: “Talk about ‘man bites dog’…”

Herald Sun photographer Nicole Garmston snapped the below images from the scene.

“They’re award-winning to my eye!” (click PLAY above to hear more from Ross and John).
