A family was lucky to escape a burning house in Robinvale this morning (20 Nov).

CFA was called to the house fire on Parke Street just before 9am.

On arrival, firefighters reported the house was fully involved in fire.

The fire was controlled within 30 minutes but the weatherboard house was completely destroyed.

There were three people in the house when the fire broke out but they escaped safely.

The origin of the fire was beside a mattress in the lounge room. The cause is believed to be accidental.

Two CFA trucks from Robinvale attended the incident.
