Quick action by emergency services yesterday afternoon prevented a fire from completely gutting a house on Wyrallah Road, East Lismore.

Emergency services were called to the house at around 4pm, by which time the art-deco style two-level home was already well alight.

Nobody was at home at the time of the fire and NSW Fire & Rescue crews managed to prevent the blaze from spreading to nearby properties.

Onlookers said the pall of smoke could be seen ‘from miles away’.
