11 Aug 2016
MFB and CFA firefighters worked together to battle a house fire in Thomastown this morning.

Crews were called to the double-storey home on Arndell Street at 9.20am.

The first arriving crews called for extra appliances as they were confronted with a two story home on fire.

The fire spread quickly and had started to enter the adjoining two story unit through the roof space.

Crews attacked the fire to prevent further fire spread and did a great job halting the spread of fire and reducing the damage to both units.  Breathing apparatus is in use.

The fire was under control in 45 minutes.

Fire investigators are on the way to the scene to determine the cause.

Appliances will be on scene for most of the day. 

A Community Advice message was issued for smoke in the area
