The roof of the building was completely engulfed in fire when firefighters arrived, however they managed to contain the roof fire.

No damage was reported to any interior of the building, with the roof being the biggest loss.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation by CFA investigators and is currently unknown, however it is not believed to have been suspicious.

District 6 Commander Mark Gunning praised firefighters who managed to control the fire and stop further damage in 45 minutes.

"When they arrived they found the roof of the house totally engulfed with fire. But there was some great work there and they stopped the fire spreading through the lower part of the house, so the resident was able to keep their furniture and everything which is a positive, but there was some substantial damage to the roof and the ceiling spaces."
