Home destroyed by fire in Rockland area of Victoria


No injuries were reported after Victoria firefighters doused a residential blaze on Friday evening.

The Victoria Fire Department’s B Platoon were called to a residential structure fire at Warren Gardens in the Rockland area of Victoria.

Just before 7 p.m., multiple fire trucks were dispatched to the scene of structure fire.

In an online post, Victoria Fire department said they secured a water source from a nearby hydrant and deployed the aerial monitor at the end of Ladder 1’s 110-foot ladder.

This maneuver allowed fire crews to combat the flames emanating from the roof of the Rockland home.

Simultaneously, interior attack crews were dispatched to suppress the fire from within.

“It was evident that the fire was seated in the void roof space, and only when firefighters were able to enter the ceiling was the fire extinguished,” read the online post.

Once the fire was doused, Victoria Fire Inspectors were summoned to investigate the cause of the fire, ensuring scene safety.

Additionally, a Fire Watch Crew have been assigned overnight to monitor the area.

Fortunately, there were no injuries reported, and all occupants safely evacuated the premises.

The occupants had been residing in the basement suite during renovations on the upper floors.
