Police close to finishing investigation into house fire

A COUPLE who lost everything in a house fire on Tuesday morning have been told they will not be able to go inside for at least a week as investigations to the cause continue.

Tina Gough said her daughter Jasmine Gough and fiance Mick Powell, along with their four-year-old daughter, were staying with her until they were able to find a new home.

"They lost everything in the fire - they don't even have phones or the keys to the cars,” she said.

The couple was too upset to speak with the NewsMail but Mrs Gough said any donations to help the family out would be appreciated.

"We have had a dining suite and a fridge given to us and some toys and clothes,” she said.

"They are both on Centrelink payments and anything would be appreciated.”

Police remained at Peatey St until after lunch today as investigations continued.

Bundaberg Criminal Investigation Branch officer-in-charge Detective Senior Sergeant Michael Bishop said the investigation was almost done but the cause of the fire was still unknown.

If you'd like to make a donation, phone Tina Gough on 0434 499 194.
