House destroyed by fire at Crafers 17 December

At around this 1:52pm this afternoon the CFS were alerted to a house fire at Wright Road, Crafers.

Eight CFS fire trucks and 35 volunteer firefighters responded and upon arrival  found the fire had spread throughout the house and the roof had collapsed.

The owner of the property was at home at the time and managed to escape with no injuries.

Firefighters managed to stop the fire spreading to neighbouring properties on either side, however the house has been completely destroyed.

Approximate dollar assessment of damages is $250,000.

The cause of the fire is unknown and Fire Cause Investigators will attend the scene this afternoon.
