Innes Park home saved from blaze

OWNERS of an Innes Park home were lucky a fire was contained to their kitchen after quick responses from passing walkers and the fire service.

Kate Bazin and her partner were out walking their dog when they spotted smoke billowing from the Woongarra Scenic Dr home about 9.15am today.

"We heard the smoke alarms going off and banged on the windows and doors, but there was no response," Ms Bazin said.

"Then we called the firefighters."

Ms Bazin said the crews were quick to arrive and soon had the blaze contained to the home's kitchen.

Fire crews are finishing up at the scene.
