The fire began at the property on Jack Johnson Court, Renown Park, just after midnight."It was just flames everywhere coming out of the windows and smoke – it's just like smoke, you couldn't really breathe," neighbour Chelsea Evans told 9News.

A fire destroyed nearly everything in a Texas man's home Friday--except for one personal possession that withstood the flames: his Bible. Charles House woke up to the smell of smoke and dashed out of his tiny home consisting of a storage unit turned into a living space.

The body of a 94-year-old hoarder was discovered slumped over a ladder after a fire started in his cluttered home . But an inquest into his death heard firefighters struggled to get into his home as items were stacked from 'floor to ceiling' with clutter.

A body has been found in a burnt-out house after an early morning blaze at a Narre Warren property.

Emergency services were called to Linlithgow Court around 3.30am on Saturday. Fire crews extinguished the blaze, and then found a body inside the home.

The cause of the fire and circumstances around the death are still unknown.

Police are investigating.

In a separate fire overnight, it took firefighters more than 30 minutes to bring a blaze at a Brunswick home under control.

When the Metropolitan Fire Brigade arrived at 12.20am, the fire at the single-story weatherboard home in McKenzie Street was threatening nearby homes.

"The fire caused the power line to break free from the house and the live wire was lying across the road and front yard," an MFB spokesman said.

Twenty-eight firefighters attacked the fire from the front and back of the property before it was declared safe.

The cause of the fire remains unknown.

The new discovery is an elusive intermediate-mass black hole—a celestial "missing link" that astronomers believe may reveal information about how supermassive black holes like Sagittarius A* form.There are four different types of black holes. Supermassive black holes lie at the center of most galaxies and slurp up nearby stars.
