Two dead, including boy, after holiday home blaze

Four children were taken to hospital with burns and smoke inhalation. Three of the children were flown by air ambulance to the Royal Children’s Hospital in a serious condition – a male infant, a female infant and a primary school-aged boy. A preschool-aged girl was in a serious but stable condition and taken to the Northern Hospital.

An Ambulance Victoria spokesperson said that three adults – two women in their 30s and a man in his 30s – were in The Alfred hospital burns unit in serious conditions. Another adult was taken to the Northern Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

Police said 11 people were taken to hospital following the blaze.

A CFA media spokesman said 16 tankers were called to the fire, and it took firefighters about two hours to bring the blaze under control.

“A single-storey structure was fully involved [with fire] on arrival,” he said. “The last crews left the scene at around 5am. Crews will attend later [Sunday] morning to ensure no further hotspots on the structure.”
