A home has been lost in Joyces Creek and Ambulance Victoria have transported a 16 year old male to hospital with superficial burns.

The four bedroom weatherboard house was fully involved when crews arrived at 3:26pm and just two chimneys remain, after a log rolled out of the fireplace this afternoon.

Four tankers, two pumpers and two forward command vehicles from Bendigo, Carisbrook, Campbells Creek, Campbelltown, Maldon, Moolort and Newstead brigades worked to contain the blaze.

Bendigo’s protective equipment van is on its way to assist with refilling oxygen cylinders as well as another tanker.

Red Cross will be providing support to the family, who are well known to the local brigade and the community.
