Highgate Hill

Fire stirs Highgate Hill from morning slumber

Today’s local house fire is a good reminder of the importance of smoke alarms. Neighbours initially thought the residents were home during the early morning fire but fortunately they’d already left for work.

The house only sold in April of this year after spending almost 9 months on the market, and now it’s been signifcantly damaged. Queenslanders burn quickly and judging by the TV footage smoke covered a huge chunk of the suburb.
