Firefighters believe a lightning strike caused a fire that resulted in significant damage to a Berwick house this morning, Tuesday 27 November.

CFA was called to the single-storey brick house in Adelong Court about 9.20am where the fire had spread from the roof, to the rear of the property, destroying about 60 per cent of the house.

It took 20 firefighters from Berwick, Hallam, Beaconsfield and Narre Warren North around 30 minutes to control the blaze.

No-one was at home at the time of the fire and no nearby houses were under threat.
