Werribee Home Fire Prompts Callout Of 29 Firefighters

A Werribee housefire has drawn the urgent attention of 29 firefighters and prompting a flurry of emergency calls. Responding to the home fire just before 3 p.m. yesterday at Golbourn Court, authorities found the home's roof ablaze. The incident underlines the swift and vital role of emergency responders, as investigations into the cause continue.

In a flurry of sirens and flashing lights, emergency services descended upon Golbourn Court in Werribbee yesterday afternoon, as reports of a raging housefire inundated the triple zero hotline. The tranquil suburban street was thrown into chaos as police, ambulance, and fire crews rushed to the scene just before the clock struck 3pm.

Eyewitnesses watched in horror as flames licked at the sky, consuming the roof of a once-stately home, casting an ominous glow over the surrounding neighborhood. The fire also inflicted damage on neighboring fences and properties.

The acrid scent of smoke hung heavy in the air as brave firefighters from Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV) battled the inferno, their valiant efforts aimed at containing the blaze and ensuring the safety of all involved.

Amidst the chaos, a spokesperson for FRV delivered a glimmer of hope, confirming that residents had managed to safely evacuate the premises before the arrival of emergency responders.

As the smoke cleared and the flames were extinguished, questions lingered about the origins of the devastating fire. FRV were unable to disclose the cause of the fire, leaving the community in suspense as they awaited answers and closure.

Speculation ran rampant among neighbors and onlookers, fueling rumors and conjecture about what could have sparked such a destructive blaze.

Thankfully, no injuries were reported, a testament to the swift and efficient response of the emergency services personnel.
