A Lockington family escaped injury when a fire broke out at the back of their Deakin St home Tuesday night.

Jim Reilly said they were grateful for the Lockington and Echuca CFA’s swift response to their 000 call.

Mr Reilly said his son noticed the flames and raised the alarm.

Cheryl Reilly said the main thing was that her family and home were safe.

Lockington fire captain Ray Kilsby said the fire caught onto the north wall and ceiling.

He said it took 30 minutes to control the fire.

CFA fire investigators are looking into the source of the blaze.
