FIRE gut­ted a home in Koon­doola last Fri­day while the fam­ily was away for the sum­mer hol­i­days.

Emer­gency crews raced to the Tem­pany Way prop­erty after neigh­bours raised the alarm about 5am.

Fire­fight­ers were told the fam­ily was away.

“The fam­ily went away be­fore Christ­mas ac­cord­ing to neigh­bours,” a DFES spokes­woman said.

“There was a re­port from a neigh­bour of hear­ing an ex­plo­sion.”

Times pho­tog­ra­pher Martin Ken­nealey cap­tured pic­tures of in­ves­ti­ga­tors at the scene.

Dam­age to a house gut­ted by fire in Koon­doola last Fri­day is es­ti­mated at $300,000.
