A South Australian fire department has responded to a blaze at a house in an isolated rural community.
Key points:The blaze was spotted on Monday nightFirefighters were called to a house at the Blyth Farm, near the village of Derry, around 7.40pm on Monday.
The home was uninhabitable, but crews were able to quickly contain the fire.
The fire is now contained to a single house.
“The home that we got called to is one of the only houses in the whole area where there’s no water, no electricity and no electricity at all,” SA Fire Service Superintendent Ian Wilson said.
“There’s no heat, no hot water.
So there’s a significant amount of fire activity.”
Mr Wilson said the blaze was not a serious incident.
“We’ve had to deal with some very serious conditions,” he said.
“We’ve got crews in there to deal at the moment with this, we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us.”
But it’s very, very isolated, so it’s a good situation to be in.
