A fire at the Crayfish Creek Van and Cabin Park (Australia) has caused the loss of AU$50,000.
The Tasmania Fire Service said the fire, which started at around 10 pm on Friday, was an accident and was contained to a bedroom in one of the cabins located on the property.
Crayfish Creek Van and Cabin Park owner Dale Newall said the cabin resident was a permanent tenant.
“The biggest disappointment is for the long-term tenant, who we will have to accommodate, and rentals are hard to find,” he said.
“She took a lot of pride in her dwelling.”
Newell claimed that the fire, which erupted through a power, took long before it was extinguished.
“There was a fair bit of flood damage as it took a copious amount of water to get it out,” he said.
“We have good firefighting equipment, but all we could do was hold it off before the fire brigade arrived.”
Newall has praised the TFS for their swift response.
The destination offers a choice of luxury spa cabins, family holiday park cabins, on-site vans with ensuites, as well as serviced and unpowered campsites.
