Glossop house fire
Just after 7am this morning CFS fire crews were called to a house fire just outside Glossop in the Riverland.
The occupants of the house were able to extinguish the fire; when fire crews arrived they assisted to secure and ventilate the home to prevent further damage which was limited to a bedroom.
Occupants inside the house escaped without serious injury.
Three appliances and a bulk water carrier attended the incident which included an MFS crew.
The fire is believed to have been started from a bar heater being knocked over by a pet dog while the residents where not in then room.
Just a timely reminder to be mindful when using a heater and ensure it is not left on if you are not in attendance.
Damage bill is estimated at $40,000.2018-06-25 Daniel Hamilton
