Fire destroys house

A FIRE engulfed a house and a shed in Kongwak on Wednesday afternoon.

The aluminium clad wood house on the Kongwak-Bena Road was about 100 years old.

The homeowners were outside the house when they noticed something was burning.

CFA units were called to the scene at 1.20pm, but the house was fully ablaze when they arrived.

Fortunately, firefighters were able to save two adjoining sheds.

No one suffered injuries and minimal property damage was done outside the house and shed.

CFA units were quick to contain the fire and stop it from spreading.

Units turned out from Kongwak, Inverloch, Korumburra, Glen Alvie and Wonthaggi. Pound Creek CFA brought along a pump to supply water.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
