FIRE services were called to a house fire in Brock Street, Euroa on Sunday at 2.30pm.
Euroa and Violet Town brigades attended the call out, with Sheans Creek, Longwood and Shepparton Hazmat brigades arriving in support.
Crews discovered the 98 year old home alight, with the front of the house fully engulfed in flames, and took an hour to bring the blaze under control.
It is believed the fire caused between $250,000 to $300,000 worth of damage and an investigation of the cause is still under way.
Occupants of the house were treated by paramedics for possible smoke inhalation and police were at the scene to direct traffic.
CFA rostered duty officer Rob Van Dorsser told the Euroa Gazette that the blaze was not treated as suspicious.
“It was caused by the overheating of a lithium battery being recharged,” he said on Monday.
