Eagleby home goes up in flames

Police are looking into the cause of a blaze that has torn through an Eagleby house overnight.

Fire crews were called to the home on Herses Rd around 9:45pm on Thursday, and managed to put the flames out within an hour.

Luckily, no one was home when the fire broke out but investigators said it caused significant structural damage to about a third of the ground floor.

The rest of the building suffered extensive water and smoke damage.

Investigators were due to head back to the scene on Friday morning to try and determine how the blaze started, and whether or not it was deliberately lit.
