Two people have been taken to hospital after a house fire in Cranbourne West on Tuesday 8 September.

Fire crews were called to a house at Aquatic Drive just after 11.20am, following multiple calls to triple-zero.

Fire Rescue Victoria arrived on scene within seven minutes and found a home that was heavily smoke logged, after a fire spread to the roof.

Paramedics were also called to the incident just after 11.30am.

An Ambulance Victoria spokesperson said two occupants of the house including a woman in her 50s was taken to Monash Medical Centre in a stable condition, while a teenager was taken to The Royal Children’s Hospital. Both were in a stable condition.

Firefighters worked to bring the fire under control by 11.40am.

An FRV spokesperson said firefighters used a ladder platform to check for smoke and fire extension on the second storey of the property.

“At the height of the incident there were three FRV crews on scene from Dandenong, Frankston, and Cranbourne Fire Stations,” the spokesperson said.

Country Fire Authority units also supported FRV at the scene.

It is the second house fire in a week in Cranbourne West after flames engulfed a Scarborough Avenue property on 2 September where two people were also rushed to hospital.
