A firefighter attempts to extinguish a fire in the roof of a Shepparton house.

Fire investigators will visit a Shepparton property to determine the cause of a fire which ripped through the house yesterday.

Firefighters were called to a Tonkin Crt house fire just after 2pm yesterday.

Shepparton Country Fire Authority senior station officer Leigh Allan said the property’s main bedroom was fully involved when firefighters arrived.

‘‘The fire had gotten up into the main roof space,’’ Mr Allan said.

‘‘The fire’s involved over 60 per cent of the house.

‘‘The residents won’t be able to stay in the property.’’

He said fire investigators had been called to investigate the cause of the fire, which was yesterday unknown.

Three fire trucks, including one from Mooroopna, attended the fire.

It took firefighters about 30 minutes to control the fire, he said.

Police also attended the fire.

Gas and electricity company representatives visited the property to disconnect the utilities.
