$100,000 house fire at Gemmel

CFS crews were called to a structure fire in a home at Gemmel Road, Gemmel, north of Strathalbyn at 9:45am this morning.

Four CFS trucks including a Bulk Water Carrier responded and were able to contain the fire to the loungeroom and kitchen, despite the fire reaching the roof space. While the quick work by crews confined the fire to the two rooms, the remainder of the house has been impacted by smoke.

One occupant was home at the time and sustained minor burns to their hands. They have been treated by SA Ambulance on scene.

Total losses are believed to be approximately $100,000 and Fire Cause Investigators will be on scene later today.
