Fire destroys abandoned home on northern Gold Coast

An abandoned home has been destroyed in a fierce blaze on the northern Gold Coast.

Firefighters were called to the derelict home on Karingal Drive at Pimpama around 3.30 on Saturday morning.

The home was well alight when crews arrived and could do little to save the house.


It took firefighters around an hour to bring the blaze under control.

It’s not clear how the blaze was started but Police will be looking into whether it was deliberately lit.

Fire investigators will return to the scene this morning.

Nobody was injured in the blaze.
