It was an early start for CFA crews when they were called to a house fire on Rosalind Street in Cohuna.

The fire broke out in the Cohuna residence at 4.15am this morning (17 July) and crews were at the scene shortly after.

Firefighters arrived to find the house well alight and although the house was not able to be saved, crews managed to stop the fire spreading to neighbouring properties.

The two occupants of the house escaped safely and phoned Triple Zero (000). They are now being looked after by neighbours.

CFA District 20 Rostered Duty Officer Mick Lavery said crews did a great job to get the fire under control and extinguish the blaze.

“About 20 firefighters from Cohuna, Kerang and Leitchville attended and were able to get the fire under control in under an hour,” Mick said.

The fire was called under control at 5am.

Crews remained on scene for an extended period to clean up.

A fire investigation will take place to identify the cause.
