FIRE­FIGHT­ERS were called to a two-storey house fire on Al­bert St, St Ge­orge, on Mon­day morn­ing.

A Queens­land Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vices spokes­woman said fire­fight­ers re­ceived the call at 6.47am, and ar­rived to find the house “well-in­volved”.

Both Queens­land Am­bu­lance Ser­vice and Queens­land Po­lice Ser­vice of­fi­cers were at the scene to con­trol the sit­u­a­tion as best as pos­si­ble.

The fire was con­tained to the struc­ture while fire­fight­ers con­tin­ued to hose down hot spots as of Mon­day morn­ing, the spokes­woman said.

Un­for­tu­nately, the prop­erty could not be saved, with the home com­pletely de­stroyed by the fire.

All oc­cu­pants were ac­counted for.

The fire in­ves­ti­ga­tion unit was no­ti­fied, to de­ter­mine the orig­i­nal cause of the blaze.


LOST: The home at 64 Al­bert St, St Ge­orge, was com­pletely de­stroyed on Mon­day morn­ing.
