Fire crews were able to quickly begin an attack on the fire, confirm that all occupants had escaped and also protect the adjoining properties from the radiant heat. The fire was extinguished after two hours with the house suffering extensive damage. Two people were taken to hospital and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
