A summer barbecue has turned into a nightmare for an Adelaide family, after a fire destroyed their home.
Fire crews were called to the home in the Adelaide Hills about 8.30pm yesterdays, arriving to find the two-storey timber home being engulfed by flames.
It took a team of 38 firefighters to control the blaze and prevent it from spreading to neighbouring properties.
At the height of the blaze in Annette Way, Coromandel Valley the Country Fire Service issued a smoke advice warning to people living in the area.
The family was able to escape without injury and were comforted by neighbours as they stood on the street watching their home burn.
9News understands the property is insured. Damage has been estimated at $500,000.
