Millicent house fire destroys home

At 7:14 this morning the CFS was alerted to a house fire on a property near the intersection of Acacia Drive and Wattle Road, Millicent, in the state’s southeast.

Crews arrived to find a three bedroom, wooden, demountable home fully alight.

In total three CFS fire trucks attended, with approximately 35 firefighters using defensive techniques to stop the fire spreading to nearby shoulder-height grass.

The resident of the home was able to get out of the home safely, but was injured by the fire and was transported to hospital by SA Ambulance Services.

The home was completely destroyed, with losses estimated to be between $150,000 and $200,000.

Fire cause investigators will be on the scene later today to confirm the cause of the fire.
