Callington Structure Fire - December 23

At just after 2.30pm this afternoon, CFS was alerted to a structure fire at a single storey family home on Hallett Street in Callington.

8 CFS appliances carrying over 30 personnel from brigades in the surrounding area were quick to respond to the fire which had burnt through the roof of the property.

CFS firefighters wearing breathing apparatus did an excellent job in containing the fire to the roof space, preventing further damage to the rest of the property. They were also able to retrieve Christmas presents from the property to return to the family.

The South Australian Ambulance Service also attended the incident and treated minor injuries at the scene.

The damage estimate for this incident is $150,000. The cause is yet to be determined but is believed to be non-suspicious.
