A man believed to be in his late teens or early twenties has been dragged unconscious from a house fire at Werribee this morning (Saturday 28 September).

Four CFA crews from Werribee and Hoppers Crossing were called to reports of a heater fire at a home in Blackwood Court around 7.30am.

With the single storey brick veneer house well alight when crews arrived, fireifghters in breathing apparatus entered the house and found a man unconcious inside.

They performed CPR on him until paramedics arrived a short time later.

It took fireifighters around 20 minutes to bring the fire under control.

Fire Investigators will be called in to examine the scene and determine a cause.
