House and grassfire at Blakeview - 1 November 2019

At 3:44 this morning CFS were alerted to a grass fire at Medlow Road, Blakeview.

Approximately 20 firefighters from three CFS crews and one MFS crew, supported by a CFS bulk water carrier, arrived to find a house fire had spread to neighbouring grass.

The firefighters quickly extinguished grassfire and were able to limit the damage to the home.

Damage caused by the fire to the building is estimated to be $20,000.

The home was believed to be unoccupied, so the cause of the fire has been deemed to be suspicious, with Fire Cause Investigators to attend the scene this morning.
