A Mooroopna woman was at work when her house of 20 years caught fire yesterday morning.
Mooroopna and Shepparton firefighters were called to the weatherboard house in Echuca Rd about 7.10
Mooroopna Country Fire Authority third lieutenant Luke Commisso said the fire was believed to have started in a lounge room at the front of the house.
Mr Commisso said firefighters arrived to find the kitchen nearing flash point at the back of the house.
He said the whole house was left with significant heat and smoke damage after the fire was controlled within about 15 minutes.
Fire investigators spent yesterday trying to determine the cause of the fire, which Mr Commisso believed was not suspicious.
The woman and sole occupant of the house, who did not want to be named, was working at Goulburn Valley Health when the fire started.
Firefighters rescued a dog from her house.
‘‘I still have a front door, but don’t come knocking at it,’’ the woman said jokingly.
‘‘It could have been worse. You just have to laugh about it.’’
The woman said she would live with her sister in the short term.
Shepparton police and Powercor staff also attended the scene.
