Community rallies behind house fire victims
THE Scenic Rim community is rallying together to help a family whose house was destroyed by fire over the weekend.
Six fire crews were called to the Queenslander-style home on Biddaddaba Creek Rd, Biddaddaba, around 12.40am on Saturday, July 21.
A Queensland Fire Service spokesperson said upon arrival "crews found the house well alight".
Crews battled the blaze until 3.20am when they started dampening down the property.
The spokesperson also said "fire crews left the scene at approximately 5.45am in the hands of Queensland Police officers".
"One crew also returned in the morning to continue dampening down some hot spots."
It is believed no one was injured during the blaze.
A Go Fund Me page has been set up to raise money for the family.
