CFA and MFB crews were called to a well alight house fire in Springvale just after 1am today Monday 24 November.  

When CFA crews from Springvale and Dandenong arrived on scene the fire had spread to a neighbouring car and car port.

Incident Controller Andy Waterson for CFA Springvale co-ordinated crews with an aggressive fire attack to save the adjoining home belonging to an elderly couple.

Crews manage to contain the fire and save the neighbouring house within an hour.

An additional pumper was called for and MFB arrived and worked with firefighters at the job. Police, power and the gas company were also on scene.

The cause of the fire will be investigated today.
