Earlier this morning firefighters were called for a house fire in Brighton.

Crews arrived at the Gillard Street home just after 9am.

On arrival they found a single storey brick veneer house that was heavily involved in fire in the rear kitchen area.

Neighbours were concerned that there could be someone at home so the firefighters immediately conducted an internal search that confirmed that there was no one at home.

A dog was found hiding in one of the rooms, which was heavily smoke logged.  A firefighter carried the dog outside and once it was in the fresh air seemed to be ok.

An aggressive internal attack on the fire limited major damage to rear and some of the roof structure.

Our Fire Investigation crew is in attendance to determine a cause.
