Central Highlands fire
A fire investigator will take a closer look at what's left of a shack in the Central Highlands community of Brandum that went up in flames early on Wednesday morning.
The resident of the Jillett Road North property raised the alarm at around a quarter to 2 after managing to flee the flames.
Several brigades from as far away as Bothwell and Deloraine responded but couldn't save the structure.
Police remained on the scene to keep watch ahead of the investigation.
