The two-story house was well involved in fire before firefighters came on the spot.

It took the fire department two hours to suppress the fire that had stolen a house on Saturday morning in Nelson.

Stoke Volunteer Fire Brigade Commander of the fire brigade Lance Williams said that at 6.06 am it was informed of the fire in the house.

When firemen arrived on the scene, they discovered that the two-story house was fully involved.

Williams said it took six fire engines from Stoke, Nelson, and Richmond, and firefighters used the breathing apparatus for two hours to get the fire under control.

"Because it was a two-story house that was well involved, it was a difficult task.
