Firefighters this morning failed to save a weatherboard home at Nimbin Road, Booerie Creek, which has been completely destroyed by fire.
A spokesperson for NSW Fire & Rescue told Echonetdaily they had received a call at 5.40am to support RFS crews battling the out-of-control blaze.
All the occupants had vacated the house by the time help arrived but the home – together with two vehicles, a shed and a caravan – was already well alight and could not be saved.
The Fire & Rescue spokesperson said a woman had been transported to hospital by road ambulance ‘as a precaution’.
Crews left the scene at around 7.30am, leaving RFS and police in attendance.
An RFS spokesperson said the fire was completely extinguished by 8.30am, after three truck remained to decontaminated ‘a small amount of asbestos’.
He said that RFS was still to investigate the cause of the blaze as ‘there was no obvious predetermined cause’ but added it was not suspicious.
