Rockingham home gutted by fire hours after Malaga blaze

A property in Perth’s southern suburbs was engulfed in flames overnight, destroying parts of the home.

Dozens of firefighters raced to the Rockingham home along Kent Street, at 8.48pm, and found two rooms in the house completely alight.

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services confirmed it took firefighters 90 minutes to control the inferno, which sparked in one of the front rooms of the single-storey home.

Police and Western Power were also called to the scene.

The fire is being treated as non-suspicious and DFES is investigating.

The blaze came hours after firefighters responded to a structure fire in Malaga on Thursday afternoon, prompting a smoke alert for the area.

Dozens of firefighters battled the blaze at an earth-moving factory on Victoria Road, near the intersection of Crocker Drive for several hours after it ignited about 2.48pm.

Victoria Road was closed by emergency services while firefighters worked to contain the blaze.

A smoke alert was issued for residents in the area, as the fire contained potential hazardous materials.

Firefighters remained at the scene overnight to monitor the extinguished blaze and make sure no flare-ups occurred.

Just after 6pm Thursday night, DFES removed the smoke warning for the area and alerted motorists that Victoria Road had since reopened.
