UPDATE – The fire was been determined to have been caused by down lights overheating. ACT Fire & Rescue crews conducted salvage operations after significant heat and water damage to the house. Damage is estimated at $50,000. An electrical and structural assessment will have to be completed before the occupants are allowed to re-enter their home. Firefighters will soon leave the scene.
