House fire not sus­pi­cious

Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

AU­THOR­I­TIES have con­firmed that a fire that caused dam­age to a Burke Street home on the week­end was not sus­pi­cious.

De­tec­tive Sergeant Chris Hill of the Wan­garatta Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion Unit said the blaze had been ruled as an ac­ci­dent, start­ing in a bed­room.

Det Sgt Hill said the fire broke out in the home around 2.30am on Satur­day while un­oc­cu­pied.

The res­i­dent dis­cov­ered the fire upon his re­turn home and alerted fire crews.

They ex­tin­guished the blaze, but not be­fore it caused sig­nif­i­cant dam­age in­side the weath­er­board prop­erty.
