Paul Ward inspects the remains of the home of his son and daughter in law which burned to the ground the day before. The family believe mice ate through the wiring in their roof leading to the fire. The house is not insured against incidents like this. In 2021, farming areas in southeastern, southern and western Australia faced a massive infestation of mice which ruined millions of dollars worth of crops and animal feed.
