A Mosgiel house is consumed by flames on Saturday as firefighters from Mosgiel and Dunedin got the rare chance to systematically deal with a house fire room by room.

The near-derelict Gladstone Rd South house was offered to the Mosgiel Volunteer Fire Brigade by its owner, who wanted to clear the site to build a new house, training session organiser Mosgiel Station Officer Steven Turnbull said.

It was the first time in six years the brigade had been provided a house in a rural setting for training purposes.
