Homes Destroyed In Wollongong Fires

Inquiries will continue today into a fire which has destroyed a home in Cringila overnight
Emergency services were called to Cringila Street shortly before 7 o'clock and found a house well alight.
Fire fighters attended and extinguished the blaze, however the house was totally destroyed.
No occupants were home at the time and no injuries have been reported.
The cause of the fire is still to be determined, however, it is not being treated as suspicious.
Meantime a man aged in his 60's suffered burns to his face in a house fire earlier in the day at Koonawarra.
He was taken to Wollongong hospital, while the home on Echuca Crescent was destroyed.
