At 8:30am on May 30 Hastings and Bittern were responded to a report of a structure fire, upon arrival crews found a two story brick house well alight with flames visible inside of the house and out of the windows. The occupants had managed to evacuate safely thanks to a working smoke alarm. Due to the construction of the house, an aerial appliance, Frankston teleboom, was requested to assist with blacking out on the upper story whilst Mornington FCV brought a Thermal Imaging Camera to help locate and cool any remaining hot spots. Fire Investigators are assessing the cause of the blaze.
