House Saved at Kingscote Kangaroo Island (10-Nov-18)

At just after 5pm, after receiving a tripe zero call, the CFS were dispatched to a shed fire at BULLOCK RD, Kingscote on Kangaroo Island.

25 CFS and Department for Environment and Water (DEW) firefighters responded to the scene and found an 18 x 10 m shed well involved in fire with an adjoining house under threat, with potential spread to surrounding scrub and grasslands.

Firefighters took an hour and a half to contain the fire. The shed, containing a car, sustained $200k damage but the home was saved. Nobody was injured in the blaze.

Fire cause investigators are working to determine the cause.
