$350,000 house fire at Aberfoyle Park

At just before midnight last night CFS and MFS crews were alerted to a fire in a bedroom at home in Greenfield Rise at Aberfoyle Park.

Four CFS and two MFS crews arrived to find the fire, which had started from a candle-lit oil diffuser, had spread from the bedroom into roof space.

Crews were able to stop the fire from spreading through the house, but damages have been estimated at $350,000 with the room and the roof at the rear of the home destroyed.

Firefighters were able to protect surrounding properties and a boat that was being stored on site.

No injuries were reported.
