Richmond structure fire under control

Saturday, 24 July 2021 at 8:50 am

Arriving within four minutes crews quickly entered the smoke logged residence and began sweeping the premises for possible persons trapped inside and the source of the blaze.

The fire was extinguished in 22 minutes. Crews remained on scene for some time to monitor for hot spots and help ventilate the structure.

All occupants were successfully evacuated, though two were placed into the care of Ambulance Victoria paramedics and taken to hospital.

FRV was also supported by Victoria Police and the Department of Human Services.

Cause is yet to be determined.
