UPDATE: Police believe rubbish and heat caused blaze

UPDATE: Police have said the Dunn Rd fire appears to have been non-suspicious and appeared to have started in a pile of combustible materials which had been sitting at the side of the property for about six months.

Police said the fire was likely caused by current hot and dry conditions, due to a pile of rubbish.

No one was injured and there was only external damage suffered to the side of the dwelling and adjoining patio.

There was no internal damage.
