$100,000 structure fire at Tungkillo - 31 October 2022

Just after 9:00am this morning, CFS crews were alerted to reports of a structure fire on Pebbly Range Road, Tungkillo.

On arrival, crews found black smoke issuing from the house, which was predominantly made of wood. They worked quickly to contain the fire to half of the structure, however the other half has suffered extensive smoke damage.

Four CFS trucks, along with a Bulk Water Carrier, were supported on scene by SAPOL and SA Ambulance. There are no reported injuries, and the sole occupant was able to evacuate safely.

Damages are estimated at approximately $100,000, and the cause is unknown at this stage, however this will be investigated.

The fire is contained, however crews will be on scene for some time to monitor and continue to extinguish.
