Brukunga structure fire

Late this morning at about 1120 CFS crews responded to a house fire on Military Road at Brukunga.

When crews arrive the rear house of the house was well involved and quickly burning through the roof.

Firefighters were able to access the roof space and extinguish the fire and limited the impact to the rear of the house.

Occupants were home and were able to exit safely and there have been no reports of injury.

Cause of the fire has yet to be determined but fire cause investigators will attend later today.

About 25 firefighters attended the fire and the estimated damage bill was between $70 and $100k.

Timely reminder to check smoke alarms are working.
