Probe into fire cause

INVESTIGATIONS are being made into a blaze that destroyed an old vacant rural dwelling between Berry and Kangaroo Valley.

The blaze in Priddles Lane at Wattamolla was reported just before 1am.

Twenty-two personnel from five Rural Fire Service units at Kangaroo Valley,  Shoalhaven Heads, Illaroo Road, Beaumont and Broughton Vale responded to the blaze, but there was nothing volunteers could do to save the building, which had just recently been vacated.

It took almost an hour to extinguish.

Police from the Forensic Service Group and RFS fire investigators have examined the scene to pinpoint how the blaze started.
