House fire at Menzies, KI- 2 Feburary

At 2:43 this morning, the CFS was alerted to a house fire on the Playford Highway at Menzies, on Kangaroo Island.

Four trucks with 16 CFS volunteers attended the fire and arrived to find the house completely engulfed in flames.

Despite their best efforts, crews were unable to save the house, causing between $100,000-$140,000 damage.

It is understood the house was not occupied at the time, and the cause of the fire is unknown at this stage, with Fire Cause Investigators expected to attend later today.

Crews will remain on site well into the morning, to ensure the fire is properly extinguished.
