Investigations continue into the cause of a devastating Central Isis house blaze that happened only a week after a smaller fire
Fire service representative The structure was engulfed in flames when we arrived.
AN ISIS Central house burnt to the ground yesterday, just eight days after it was damaged in another fire. The owners of the Queenslander home had spent Monday night in Bundaberg while they waited for insurance money to come through to fix damage from the fire, situated in the toilet room.
It is believed there was a lot of smoke damage from the first fire and the occupants were unable to remain in the house.
Maryborough fire inspector James Gill said the fire service received a 000 call just before 5am yesterday, reporting a house on Larsons Rd, off Aidies Rd, was alight.
Mr Gill said a truck arrived at the scene about 5.30am and firefighters found the house engulfed in flames.
Captain Tim Bunn was first on the scene and said nothing could be done to save the house.
A Queensland Fire and Rescue Service representative said four crews were sent to the fire.
“The structure was engulfed in flames when we arrived,” the representative said.
“We had two firefighters in breathing apparatuses.”
He said firefighters checked to make sure no one was inside the house.
One person was staying in separate accommodation at the back of the property.
The fire was extinguished about 6.40am.
Insp Gill said residents had been cleaning up and burning rubbish around the house on Monday but it was unclear if that was related to the house fire.
Forensic police were yesterday still trying to determine the cause of the blaze and whether it was suspicious.
NO CHANCE: Firefighters arrived to find the home on Larsens Rd at Isis engulfed by flames.
