Goolwa South duplex fire

At 4:06 this afternoon the CFS was alerted to a fire at the rear of a duplex on Barrage Road, Goolwa South.

Crews arrived to find thick smoke coming from the ground floor of the two storey duplex, and quickly gained access.

In total four CFS fire trucks, two MFS fire trucks and a bulk water carrier attended the fire, with approximately 40 firefighters were at the scene.

Damages are estimated at $150,000 to $200,000 on the one side of the duplex, with the adjoining firewall limiting the damage to the neighbouring home to smoke infiltration.

Fire cause investigators are currently on the scene to determine the cause.
