A re­frig­er­a­tor is be­lieved to have ig­nited a fire that caused $200,000 dam­age to Hutchin­son Real Es­tate and placed the her­itage-listed Sun Pic­tures in Carnar­von Street un­der threat.

Broome Vol­un­teer Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice cap­tain Rob Kir­wan said he was alerted to the blaze just be­fore 1am on Oc­to­ber 29 by Perth’s op­er­a­tions cen­tre.

Broome De­tec­tive-Sergeant Pete Je­nal said an elec­tri­cal fault in the re­frig­er­a­tor caused the blaze.

A pre-sea­son NAB Cup Re­gional AFL match in 2014 is in the sights of the Shire of Broome.

The Shire was ap­proached by the West Aus­tralian Foot­ball Com­mis­sion in June about whether fa­cil­i­ties at the Fa­ther McMa­hon Sports Field were up to scratch for a match to be held early in 2013.

Broome was in­el­i­gi­ble to host the game, but keen to com­pete for an­other op­por­tu­nity.
