A fire has gutted a single-storey house in Warneet on Tuesday, 6 February but luckily no one was injured.
Emergency services were called to the Warneet Road address about 9am and found the house well-alight.
Thirteen firefighters from Warneet, Tooradin and Cranbourne fire brigades fought the blaze and stopped its spread to surrounding homes.
No one was home at the time and it’s believed the fire started from the kitchen.
Warneet Blind Bight fire brigade captain Hans Dekracker said the fire was contained by 11am but caused extensive damage to most rooms.
“More than half the house is well and truly gone and the rest is water and smoke damaged,” he said.
“It got very hot in all the bedrooms paint blistered off the walls.”
He said there were reports of an explosion being heard before the windows “blew out and then it really fired up”
“Well done to the local firies to keep it from spreading” he said.
