Golden Point house erupts in flames

At least six fire trucks were called in to battle a big house fire that erupted along Steinfeld Street this morning.

Ballarat City Fire Brigade station officer Scott Gambino said crews arrived to find the Golden Point home well engulfed in flames about 4am.

“On arrival it was fully involved, with flames issuing out of most windows,” he said.

“We deployed hose lines to the house and set up the ladder platform, containing the fire within 20 minutes.”

Nobody was at home at the time of the blaze.

Fire and police investigators have launched an investigation into the incident.

A cause is yet to be established.
