Stove catches fire at home

EMERGENCY crews were called to a Torquay home after receiving reports of a fire.

Initial reports suggested a stove at the home on Ann St caught fire about 12.15pm Monday.

A fire station officer said the thickness of smoke caused by the fire made the blaze seem much bigger than it was.

He said no one was injured in the blaze.

The officer told the Chronicle the stove had been badly damaged during the small blaze.
