Sunday Mail - - NEWS -

A MAN and a dog are dead after a shed ex­ploded in Vic­to­ria’s Dan­de­nong Ranges, with one neigh­bour say­ing he heard “a lot of scream­ing” be­fore the in­ci­dent.

Au­thor­i­ties were called to a shed in Fern­tree Gully just be­fore 4.45pm on Fri­day after reports of an ex­plo­sion.

The man, who is yet to be iden­ti­fied, and a dog were found dead in­side after the fire was ex­tin­guished.

John, who lives nearby, said he heard scream­ing be­fore the blaze. “I heard a lot, a lot of scream­ing, then a cou­ple of min­utes later the house went up in flames,” he said.

The fire was not be­ing treated as sus­pi­cious, po­lice said.
