LAKE MACQUARIE HOUSE FIRE DESTROYS ONE HOME, DAMAGES TWO OTHERS

One house was destroyed and two more were damaged in a blaze at Kilaben Bay late yesterday.

A Ridge Road home was well alight when fire fighters arrived just before 5pm.

Fire crews immediately went into a defencive strategy trying to contain the fire, narrowly saving neighbouring properties.

Police are investigating the cause of the blaze, but at this stage it’s not being treated as suspicious.
