Arson squad to attend Delacombe house fire remains

VICTORIA Police fire and arson squad will inspect the scene of a house fire in Delacombe today. 

Ballarat firefighters battled a fire at a Leawarra Crescent property late on Thursday. It took 40 minutes to get the blaze under control. 

Senior station officer Terry Fradd said fire crews received the call about 5.45pm and upon arrival found the house fully engulfed in flames. 

Mr Fradd said the house was empty at the time, however it was deemed unsafe to enter as the roof collapsed. 

The property was under watch by a police unit on Friday.
