MFB and CFA crews worked together at a Kilsyth house fire on Friday night.

The MFB crews from Croydon, Ringwood and CFA Mooroolbark were called to the Churchill Way home just before midnight.

It was reported to be well alight and was found to be totally involved when first crews arrived.

Due to the intensity of the fire initially only external attacks could be undertaken. Crews were further hampered by the possible Asbestos cladding of the building.

After some 20 minutes the fire was contained and a later search revealed no occupants were home at the time of the fire.

MFB Fire Investigators will work to ascertain the cause of the fire.

No estimate of damage has been given at this time.  

Eight appliances, including crews from CFA, attended the incident.
