He said investigators from the state’s electrical safety regulator, Building and Energy, were on site.

Mr Abdoolakhan urged people to ensure power was turned off at the main switch before entering a roof space.
“This is required by law for any worker entering the roof space of a home due to the potential electrical hazards,” he said.
Homeowners and occupants should also support this requirement when workers attend their property, Mr Abdoolakhan said.
“While it is not mandatory for homeowners to switch off the power at the main switch before they enter the roof space themselves, I strongly recommend that they do so as well,” he said.
