A young Werribee family has been torn apart after four young children lost their lives in a house fire. Somehow, their parents and 8-year-old brother managed to escape thanks to frantic neighbours who did all they could to raise the alarm.
A shattered family and a heartbroken community are coming to terms with the loss of two boys and two girls in a house fire, despite the best efforts of crews at Werribee in Melbourne’s south-west.
Four children under the ages of 10 have been killed in a tragic house fire in Werribee overnight. Firefighters were called to the home shortly after 1am and had to break through the garage.

JULIE SHEPHEARD What a dreadful tragedy for this family to endure to the very brave firemen and women and police officers that had to attend this dreadful fire of grief my heartfelt thanks to you all for your bravery during these times. May God Bless and Keep You All Safe and the family remaining.
SONIA Those poor poor 4 little ones tragically gone. There is an 8 yr old boy who survived -as well as a man/woman-I can’t imagine how terrible the coming months(years) will be for them. I hope the arson squad/explosives experts are able to figure out how/why the fire was so intense.
