$115,000 structure fire at Ardrossan - 13 May 2022

At approximately 11:30am today, CFS crews were called to a structure fire on Fourth Street, Ardrossan, on the eastern Yorke Peninsula.

Four CFS trucks from Ardrossan, Maitland and Port Victoria responded, along with a bulk water carrier from Yorke Valley Group. Upon arrival, crews found a motorhome parked on a residential property fully alight.

Whilst the motorhome and an adjoining carport were destroyed, firefighters were able to prevent the fire from spreading to the home, with only superficial damage to the façade of the property reported.

Losses are estimated at $115,000, and thankfully nobody was injured, however SA Ambulance attended to monitor the resident as a precaution.

SAPOL are on scene, although the fire is not believed to be suspicious and CFS crews will remain on site to monitor and clean up.
