The field also caused damage to the garden adjacent to the house. The flames completely destroyed the swimming pool enclosure as well as the pools' installations.
The family of Grange has suffered a significant loss in material value, according to the assessment. Although the cause of the fire is unknown, it could have been caused by the combination of extreme heat and drought.
