Emergency services quick response to house fire
EMERGENCY crews attended the scene of a house fire in Adams St yesterday which initial investigations suggest was started from a cigarette accidentally being flicked into a pile of leaf litter.
Queensland Fire and Rescue station officer Trevor Duncan said officers responded to the call shortly after noon after a passer-by noticed smoke billowing from the back of the house.
"One person sleeping inside the house was woken by smoke alarms but was outside before we arrived," he said.
Mr Duncan said officers were able to put out the fire which caused minimal smoke and water damage but no structural damage to the rear of the home.
