Fire destroys Yanchep house

A fire sparked by an unattended candle destroyed a home in Yanchep overnight.

Firefighters were called to Brazier Road about 10.30pmm, where a house was engulfed in flames.

It took about 12 firefighters from Osborne Park, Yanchep, Joondalup and Butler three hours to extinguish the blaze.

A Department of Fire and Emergency Services spokesman said the fire caused $150,000 damage.

No one was home at the time but an ambulance was called after a woman in a nearby house complained of breathing difficulties.

The woman, aged in her 40s, was treated for smoke inhalation.
