Police cordoned off this house in Hottentot Crescent, Mullumbimby, which almost burnt to the ground late yesterday afternoon. Police say a 47-year-old Mullumbimby man in the house was sitting on the toilet when he smelt the smoke and emerged to discover the kitchen ablaze. Emergency crews raced to the home, which by then was well alight, and extinguished the blaze. No-one was hurt in the fire and police and fire authorities are investigating its cause.
