Fire destroys family home on cattle property north of Yaamba
WHAT started as a routine work day on a family cattle property north of Yaamba ended in heartbreak on Friday.
A family member returned home on dusk to find his highset Queenslander burnt to the ground.
When firefighters arrived on scene, there was little left of the structure; the roof was lying on the ground.
The tight-knit community has rallied around the family.
While the cause of the fire is yet to be determined, it is not being treated as suspicious.
