Couple escape burning home

By Zoe McMaugh

Two occupants of a Crispe St home in east Deniliquin have escaped unharmed from their burning home, along with their dogs.

While the home has not been completely destroyed, the occupants say there is significant damage.

Crispe St is closed between Harfleur St and Wick St while firefighters still work to ensure the fire, which started early this morning, is completely extinguished.

Firefighters in a bucket lift were, just before 8am, checking the roof cavity from which smoke could be seen rising.

More details to come.
