Police investigating cause of Moura house fire

Forensic investigators are trying to determine the cause of a blaze which destroyed a Moura home last Friday night.

Police were called to a Davey St address around 10.15pm on April 8, by which point the house was already well alight.

Although the house itself was unable to be saved, its resident thanked emergency services for their quick response.

"Without your tireless work we would never have been able to salvage some memorable items," she wrote in a post on Facebook.

"Thank you also to the gentleman (sorry I do not know your name) who so kindly donated some household items.

"It is very much appreciated."

The resident told the Central Telegraph she was able to save most of her photos.

"At least I have most of them as many house fires lose the lot," she said.

Police are investigating whether the fire was an accident or whether it was deliberately lit.

The house was declared a crime scene last Friday and was under guard until the following morning.

Anyone with information related to the incident can phone Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.
