Fire in empty house sparks inquiry
THE cause of a fire which broke out in a vacant house in Goodna on Saturday night is being investigated.
Camira Fire Station Officer Ashley Jones said two crews had responded to the blaze in Queen Street about 6.40pm.
He said one of the crews had been turned back as they were not required.
Mr Jones said on arrival, firefighters found the top floor of the house alight.
The fire caused damage to one room of the house, with the rest of the property sustaining smoke and water damage.
A nearby neighbour, who did not wish to be named, said she had been inside painting her home when she had smelt the fire.
“I came running outside and saw the smoke,” she said.
