Red Hill house fire

Firefighters had to force entry into a home in Red Hill after residents left their home with their food cooking on the stove.

Crews were called to the home on the corner of Lady Nelson Place and Cygnet Crescent around 2.15pm.

The food on the stove caught alight and the smoke alarm went off, neighbours calling Triple Zero.

There is little damage to the home but it could have been worse, if not for the working smoke alarm.
