House fire at Parham- 3 July
At just after 4am this morning, CFS crews from were called to a house fire at North Terrace, Parham, a small coastal town off Port Wakefield Road, near Dublin.
When the 20 volunteers on 5 trucks arrived, the fire was engulfing most of the house, which couldn’t be saved.
There was one person home at the time. He was able to safely evacuate, but has since been taken to hospital with smoke inhalation.
While the house, with an estimated value of around $200,000, was lost, we hear the occupant was relieved to know that the volunteer firefighters were able to prevent the fire from spreading to the adjacent sheds, saving his boat and fishing gear.
This is another reminder that smoke alarms save lives. Protect yourself and those you love by ensuring you have a working smoke alarm.
