High-set house fire "suspicious" say police

EMERGENCY services remain on-scene at a Stanley St house, where they are investigating a suspicious house fire.

Fire fighters, police officers and paramedics were on scene overnight at a Stanley St house, where a fire had started on the bottom storey of the high-set home. 

Smoke had filled both levels of the home, and fire fighters worked to control the fire which began in a bedroom on the lower level. 

No one was home at the time. 

QFES officer Noel King said they were on-scene at about 8.30pm.

"On arrival we had a fully-involved bottom storey of the house, no persons reported," Mr King said. 

"The top storey of the building was smoke-logged mainly.

"At this stage we are treating it as suspicious, we will have out investigators attend the scene at 8 o'clock in the morning."
