Home destroyed in Snake Valley
A home in a remote area of Snake Valley has been destroyed by fire this afternoon (1 July).
CFA crews were called to the fire which started in the kitchen around 11.40am.
District 16 Acting Operations Manager Bernie Fradd said an elderly person was home at the time and evacuated the house prior to the arrival of crews.
“The single storey weatherboard house is located in a reasonably remote area of Snake Valley,” he said.
“The cause appears to have started in the kitchen, from cooking.”
Bernie said the house was re-located to Roddis Lane from an area previously burnt out in a bushfire.
Seven trucks from Linton, Smythesdale, Snake Valley and Skipton attended.
