CFA is investigating the cause of a fire which destroyed a Miners Rest cottage overnight.

Six crews from Wendouree, Ballarat, Invermay and Miners Rest were called to the Market Street property about 10.30pm, Saturday 11 October.

CFA District 15 RDO Gavin Hope said the cottage was being renovated and was vacant at the time of the fire.  

“Crews managed it bring it under control within 20 minutes but the property was totally destroyed by the blaze,” Mr Hope said.

“There were no injuries in the firefight.”

Police were also called to attend for traffic control.

Fire investigators are on the scene this morning to determine a cause.
