Fire damages Queenstown house

A house near Queenstown has been extensively damaged by fire tonight.

Firefighters from Queenstown, Glenorchy and Frankton were called to the blaze at Fishermans Lane at 10pm.

Southern Fire Communications shift manager Brent Dunn said the 111 call came from the people inside the house who reported a fire in the laundry.

The home in the Fortune/Bobs Cove area was well ablaze when the firefighters arrived and they contained the fire quickly, he said.

No-one was injured.

Fire investigators have been called to the scene but the fire was not thought to be suspicious, Dunn said.
