Fire at Jung: CFA declares home a crime scene

A JUNG home has been declared a crime scene after being extensively damaged by fire.

Fire-fighters were called to Baker Street about 12.15am on Monday.

Country Fire Authority District 17 operations officer Ian Day said brigades came from Jung, Murtoa, Dooen and Horsham to battle the blaze.

"Crews were there for more than four hours," he said.

"The occupants were able to get out of the house before the fire really took hold."

Mr Day said paramedics were not required and police had taken over investigations.

"It is a crime scene," he said.
