Firefighters lose battle to save Coast home in inferno
A HOUSE has been destroyed in a blaze on the Sunshine Coast.
Firefighters were called to the Eerwah Vale home on Browns Creek Rd about 10.45am after reports of a structural fire.
Nobody was in the house when the fire started, and a spokeswoman for the Queensland Fire and Emergency Service said one of the homeowners came home to discover the fire already burning.
The first fire crew was at the scene about 11am and soon brought the fire under control, but the house had already been gutted.
Most of the building has collapsed.
Crews remain at the scene, and tomorrow fire investigators will begin searching for the cause of the blaze.
The pool, which appears empty in aerial footage, was already drained prior and was not used to help combat the fire.
