Mer­rigum house fire

The Mer­rigum Fire Brigade was called out to a house fire in Mor­risey St on Fri­day morn­ing.

Brigade spokesper­son Mur­ray Yates said the alarm was raised at 4.30 am.

Mr Yates said the hus­band was wo­ken by the smoke alarm and got out through a win­dow, em­pha­sis­ing the im­por­tance of work­ing smoke alarms.

‘‘Brigade mem­bers donned breath­ing ap­pa­ra­tus to en­ter the house and get to the seat of the fire,’’ he said. ‘‘The fire was con­tained to the liv­ing room.’’ Mr Yates said the fire was caused by an elec­tri­cal fault and was at­tended by Mer­rigum and Tatura units.

Cor­rec­tion:

I must need glasses! The top left-hand pic­ture on Page 9 of last week’s Guardian named the three women as Veron­ica Dowell, Phyl Bram­ley and Lois Rogers. The first woman was in fact Merle Krause, who judged the 1960s fash­ion com­pe­ti­tion.
