Dream goes up in smoke



A COUPLE who moved to the Clarence Valley just weeks ago have lost all possessions after their house caught fire on Wednesday afternoon.

According to Clarence Valley Rural Fire Service zone manager Brett Condie, the house in Boronia Road was well alight by the time fire crews arrived.

"The structure was fully involved in fire when the units got there so there was little that could be done to save the structure," Mr Condie said.

"It was really just a matter of limiting the damage to the surrounding property."

Four fire crews attended the blaze, two RFS crews from Trenayr and two fire brigades from Grafton.

Ironically, the same house was saved from bushfires which ravaged the area in 2002.

Police said they were investigating the cause of the blaze, which is still unknown, but said there were no suspicious circumstances.
