Police probe unusual house fire
Neighbours, who only identified themselves as 'not happy with the media', said the fire broke out shortly before 11pm.
"This morning on the way to work there was a house fire in a residential area," a source at nearby Westgate Homes told Newshub. "The firefighters were still in there and the flames had spread to the car park, the kitchen and the garden."
The fire had caused extensive damage to the rear decking and some of the houses on the property, the source added.

Sydney leading galaxy in second half
â€¢ The Australian star of the day was announced as the sixth member of the NGC 1658 population of planets that is part of the "new" MacRae class. It is the second of the five new planets from the survey, along with the first to be found beyond Neptune, but it was the second best for the count; other planets found in the survey were at least 4.25 times bigger than the Sun, and twice as large as Pluto.
â€¢ New Planet (Galaxy-like) identified in the Southern Hemisphere
The Southern Hemisphere appears more like a star than an object in the survey â€“ and its star has been located as a nearby supergiant. The other members of the new MacRae cluster are smaller than the sun, and are all more than two times smaller than Neptune.
â€¢ Full description of the first planets found
The new MacRae class is a "group" â€“ but it does not really mean that all the planets are in it. Rather, it means that a specific group of objects â€“ not planets â€“ are the best candidates to be in it. The group is called "southern hemisphere planets" in the survey. The name was first mentioned in 2008 by Phil Plait, while the discovery was a surprise when the new MacRae was reported more than a decade earlier in 2010.
â€¢ New Galaxy visible on Earth
It is possible to see the newly discovered galaxy through the telescope, because the star can be seen using the wide-field lens that is fitted on the coronagraph to a small telescope mounted on an aircraft. It is the brightest object of the new MacRae classes. That means it is a faint light emission region â€“ just a little brighter than the Sun â€“ and that the faint star is the primary object, in contrast to the more massive stars. The star is also around 200 light-years away in the sky.
The Southern Hemisphere will be best-preserved at the end of this week, when Hubble is scheduled to turn on a new coronagraph for the first time to take images of the Southern Hemisphere. The survey will continue through Wednesday, but we should be able to see the new galaxies as well as the surrounding region in time for the close encounter with the dwarf galaxy NGC 1652 this Friday at 23:19 UT (23:26 UTC)
"We are now in a new phase of the field, so it will take some time to get a good look of the Southern Hemisphere, and we have a long way to go, but we are well ahead of the curve," said the project scientist, John Baez, a Hubble Fellow at the MPS at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.
