A house has been “significantly damaged” after a blaze tore through a three-bedroom home in Cook on Wednesday night (24 October).

Around 7 pm, ACT Fire & Rescue received multiple emergency 000 calls for help after reports of a house fire on Aston Crescent, Cook.

Three fire pumpers, two commanders and the breathing apparatus support van arrived on scene to find a master bedroom well alight.

Firefighters were able to contain and extinguish the blaze before it spread through the roof.

An ESA spokesperson said the home was unoccupied at the time of the fire and the cause of the fire is being investigated.
