Garage fire in Craigieburn


A family of five managed to evacuate their home unscathed on Saturday night, after their garage was engulfed in flames.

A garage on Whitfield Crescent, Craigieburn caught fire about 9.30pm before 22 Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV) firefighters arrived and extinguished it.

The fire also spread to the roof of the home, due to flammable liquids stored in the garage, making the extinguishing process more difficult, FRV said.
