$50,000 structure fire at Wepar - 24 July 2022

Just after 2pm this afternoon, CFS crews were called to a structure fire on Three Chain Road at Wepar in the state’s Lower South-East.

Four CFS crews and a bulk water carrier arrived to find the house, which was in the process of being renovated, well alight.

Thankfully the owners of the home evacuated safely and were able to alert authorities to the fire, and both SAAS and SAPOL were on scene as a precaution.

Damages are estimated at approximately $50,000, and whilst the cause of the fire is not deemed to be suspicious, Fire Cause Investigators are likely to attend.
