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.
