Electric storm sparked Miles house fire

A HOUSE has been burnt to the ground in Miles on Myall Park Rd, possibly due to an electric storm that passed through the area earlier this week.   
A Queensland Police spokeswoman said the fire occurred on Wednesday, February 19, between 6.30am and 1.30pm.
"Initial inquiries suggest that the fire may have been electrically ignited due to large electrical storm in area overnight causing power disruptions," a QPS spokeswoman said.
"Initial investigations suggest this house fire appears non-suspicious."
The QPS spokeswoman said none was home at the time of the fire.
A spokeswoman for Queensland Fire and Emergency Services said crews responded to reports of an old structural fire at 3.10pm on Wednesday, February 19.
When crews arrived, the fire was completely out.
"It (wasn't) a current fire," the QFES spokeswoman said.
"We received information from police that they found a house on a property that has been fully destroyed by fire."
