House Fire at Nuriootpa- 29 March, 2020

At 7:10pm tonight, the CFS were called to a house fire on Neil Avenue, Nuriootpa.

CFS crews arrived to find the front of the house fully alight, and worked hard to contain the fire.

While it caused significant damage to the front part of the house, crews were able to stop the fire from spreading to the whole property. The cost of damage estimated to be between $100,000 and $150,000.

22 CFS volunteers from Nuriootpa and Tanunda attended the fire and remained on the site until around 8:30pm.

The fire is believed to have been caused by an e-bike that was being charged. The CFS is reminding everyone to be vigilant when charging any household items, and to not leave items such as e-bikes and mobile phones charging unattended.
