Heater and combustible material sparks fire in West End home

A 64-year-old male found his lounge room ablaze on Saturday night in West End at around 9:55pm.

It is believed that the fire originated from combustible material near a small open heater, which he left unattended for a short period.

The man was taken to Geraldton Regional Hospital with minor smoke inhalation and was released a short time later.
