Big Brother house fire: Building ‘deliberately’ set alight by vandals

The Big Brother Australia house is still standing after allegedly being deliberately lit over the weekend.

Fire crews were called to bushland near the structure, tucked away near Gold Coast’s Dreamworld amusement park, at 2.20pm on Sunday.

Firefighters had the blaze under control within 10 minutes of arriving and say the cause is not known.

Queensland’s fire service said the house was not damaged in the fire.

However, a spokesperson for the Queensland Investment Corporation, which owns the property, told the fire was deliberately lit at the property.

Video taken by YouTube user Urban Gypsy reportedly shows smoke from the fire billowing into the sky.

The blaze comes only days after new video shows the former reality TV haven in tatters.

Big Brother house left in ruins

YouTube user MuiTube posted a video to the platform after touring the home last week.

The video showed overgrown shrubbery on much of the property, with walls covered in graffiti.

QIC has not said whether they plan on pressing charges on the user for trespassing on the property.

User jonothecameraman, who claims he was a camera operator and part-time director on the show, said he didn’t know the house was still standing.

“It’s very sad it has come to what it has,” he said in a comment on the video.
