Beerwah house destroyed

By Kirra Livingstone

A FEROCIOUS house fire ignited at a Beerwah Parade property around 11:20am on March 28, and despite the fire being contained promptly, the cause of the fire is under investigation.
Multiple fire crews and emergency services were called on site which gutted the unoccupied home, but there were reportedly no injuries.
Beerwah Fire Station Lieutenant, Andy Vaughan, said although any fire is not ideal, it was a successful day for crews in containing the blaze.
“We had up to three crews on scene to contain this fire, when we first arrived, I made sure that everyone was safe and out of the building,” he said.
“Luckily it was an abandoned structure with no one inside, and then we quickly moved to fire fighter operations.”
The fire was just doors down from the Beerwah Hotel and around the corner from the GC&M News headquarters.
