Home destroyed at Booleroo 28 August 2019

At 9:32 this morning CFS crews were alerted to a house fire by a resident, who was able to safely exit the building, at Arthur Street in Booleroo..

Five CFS crews and a CFS bulkwater carrier responded and arrived to find the building well alight.

Crews were initially restricted to fighting the fire from outside of the building due to security shutters being lowered and locked.

Once able to gain full access the firefighters were able to extinguish the fire, while protecting neighbouring homes.

The home was completely destroyed by the fire, with losses estimated at $200,000.

Fire Cause Investigators will attend the scene later today to determine the cause.
