Kyabram house fire

-

A house was destroyed by fire in Girgarre East in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Stanhope CFA captain Chris Dent said his brigade received the callout about 2.30am to a property on Girgarre East Rd.

He said the fire had engulfed most of the house by the time firefighte­rs attended the property, and there was ‘‘nothing crews could do’’ except stop it spreading.

More than 40 volunteer firefighte­rs and 13 vehicles responded to the blaze, from as far away as Echuca.

The two residents of the single-storey home escaped uninjured after being alerted to the blaze by smoke alarms.
