Five Rural Fire Service trucks attended the house fire, led by Koorawatha’s RFS Captain Mark Savva.

Mr Savva says it took 20-25 fire fighters more than an hour to extinguish the blaze.

Anthony Jennings, who lives at the home with his two children, says he is gutted to have lost everything in the fire.

”We have lived here for eight or nine years, and now we have nothing.”

He arrived home at around 3pm only to open the door to flames.

“I just called out for my dog, made sure she was safe and then called for help,” he said.

Help came in the form of Stephen O’Grady who was sitting on the verandah next door.

“Anthony just ran next door and told us to help, I went over to help him with the fire while the others called triple-0,” he said.

Mr O’Grady said that he first helped Mr Jennings remove bikes and other belongings from the verandah, before sticking a garden hose through the window of the house.

“When the window fell out, the house just went up, it was engulfed in less than five minutes,” he said.

Mr Jennings is yet to tell his children what has happened to their home.

They are blissfully unaware at their grandmother’s home.

“Mum will cook us dinner tonight,” he said.

”The kids don’t know that we have no food, no money and no clean clothes yet, but when their school shirts start to stink they will figure it out.”

Mr Jennings was very thankful for the help of the RFS teams who helped with containing the fire on the property.

“These guys left their jobs today to jump in their trucks and help us,” he said.

“It is such a great community and I take my hat off to all of the fire fighters who have come out to help me here today.”

If you would like to help the Jennings family find their feet, you can get in contact with Anthony through the Koorawatha Hotel on 6345 3401.

RFS crews and appliances on the scene included Koorawatha 1 and 7, Bendick Murrell 2, Crowther 1 and Mandolin Private, from Monteagle.

Police are currently investigating the blaze.

Anyone information is urged to call Crime Stoppers or contact Young Police.
