BLAZE: Fire-fighters were called to a house fire at Dimboola yesterday, for the second time in nine days. The two fires were unrelated. Picture: PAUL CARRACHERAUTHORITIES have confirmed a Dimboola house fire in Normanby Street on Tuesday morning was not suspicious.
Country Fire Authority District 17 regional duty officer Peter Bell said the possible cause of the fire was an electrical fault in the kitchen.
He said the cause had been narrowed down to an electrical power point.
FIRE-FIGHTERS were called to a house fire at Dimboola for the second time in nine days.
Country Fire Authority brigades attended a fire in Normanby Street just after 10am yesterday.
The earlier Dimboola house fire was at a vacant weatherboard house in Malvern Road on June 17.
Authorities said the fires were unrelated.
Five crews took about 45 minutes to extinguish the Normanby Street house fire.
They contained the blaze to a kitchen and roof area of the weatherboard house.
A woman who was in an attached granny flat at the time escaped unharmed.
The granny flat was unaffected by the fire.
The house will be demolished.
CFA District 17 duty officer and fire investigator Peter Bell said the fire did not appear to be suspicious.
“Fire investigations are determining the cause at the moment,” he said. “It is all smoke damage and water damage, but the fire went through the roof so the roof is unstable, as are a lot of the walls in there.
“The fire is not linked to the previous house fire at Dimboola.”
