Fire destroys house

Fire destroyed an old weatherboard house in Bangalow Road at Byron Bay early yesterday morning.


Byron Bay and Bangalow Fire Brigades were called to the house about 5.30am to find it well alight.


The HAZMAT unit also attended as did Byron Bay police and ambulance.


It’s believed the house was occupied by a number of backpackers who escaped with only minor injuries.


The cause of the fire is being investigated.
