House fire in Bamawn

UPDATE: The CFA says wet weather hampered fire fighting efforts at a house fire in Hansen Road, Bamawn.

"We had nine trucks called in and some of those were for water supply because trucks couldn't access local water supplies because they may have got bogged in the wet weather and that's why so many trucks were called in," a CFA spokeswoman said.

"The occupants at the house aren't home but crews are trying to verify their location but they don't believe anyone was inside."

The spokeswoman said the cause of the fire was yet to be determined.

UPDATE: The house fire in Hansen Road, Bamawn, has now been listed as safe on the CFA website.

A CFA spokeswoman said firefighters were now mopping up.

It is believed the house is on a dairy farm.

"Initially they said it was fully engulfed so I'm just waiting for an update," the spokeswoman said.

"There are still nine units on scene."
