Charleville house ‘not able to be saved’ after late night inferno

UPDATE, 6.15pm:

The cause of a blaze that gutted an Edward St home in Charleville is still unknown, with fire investigators continuing to assess the incident.

Three Queensland Fire and Emergency Service crews were on scene of the inferno from 10.22pm on January 20, with one crew returning at 7.15am the next morning to dampen some hotspots on the roof, a spokeswoman said.

These hotspots took half an hour to extinguish.

A Queensland Police spokeswoman confirmed that one woman and six children were living in the house at the time, and the circumstances of the blaze are being treated as non-suspicious.

Thankfully, paramedics did not need to attend to any injuries and all seven occupants made it out safely.
