A YOUNG man’s music studio went up in smoke last week when his Delloro Road shed caught fire.
Firefighters were called to the rural property in Wangaratta South just after midnight on Friday and found the 13×9 metre shed fully engulfed in flames after an apparent power point fault.
Wangaratta Fire Brigade senior station officer, David Brock, said the fire took about half an hour to get under control, but two motorbikes, a ride-on mower and music equipment were among the items destroyed by the blaze.
“Part of the building had been turned into a music studio,” he said.
“We used breathing apparatus and several hose lines to bring it (fire) under control.”
About 20 firefighters in six vehicles from Wangaratta, Wangaratta South and Glenrowan attended the scene.
The fire did not spread to the house.
Fire investigators and a building inspector were at the scene on Friday morning and an Energy Safe Victoria representative was brought in during the afternoon to try and determine the cause, which appeared to be a faulty power point.
