A man in his 70s has died after a house fire at Altona, in Melbourne’s west.
The fire began in the kitchen of the Rose Street address. It is believed the man was cooking dinner.
The man called the Metropolitan Fire Brigade, and when firefighters arrived at 6.30pm he was found collapsed outside the front of the house apparently suffering smoke inhalation.
An Ambulance Victoria spokeswoman said the man died at the scene. Ten firefighters took minutes to bring the fire under control.
An MFB spokesman said a fire blanket had been thrown on the stove and the man had possibly tried to extinguish the flames himself. The MFB is investigating the cause of the fire.
