FRV and CFA appliances were responded this morning after several calls were made to Triple Zero (000) for a house on fire in Truganina.
Firefighters found a single storey 20m x 10m brick structure on Kalimna Way, Truganina, and adjoining garage well alight and immediately began to assess whether anyone was inside and stop the blaze from spreading to neighbouring properties.
The fire was declared under control at 08:42hrs, approximately 30 mins after arriving on scene. The cause of the fire has been deemed suspicious with the scene being handed over to Victoria Police.
Neighbours say that a series of cars and trucks regularly frequented the house.
FRV was also supported by Ambulance Victoria paramedics and CFA.
