A house in Upper Main Arm was burnt to the ground last night with the fire extending into some of the local bushland.

Firefighters were called out to the property at 11.50pm last night (Tuesday, 27 November, 2018) with the Mullumbimby fire brigade, Main Arm, Billinudugel and Mullum rural fire service (RFS) attending.

The owner of the property was treated at the scene for minor burns and smoke inhalation before being transferred to hospital. The owner was released from hospital this morning. Some members of the RFS were also treated at the scene for smoke inhalation by ambulance crew.

RFS saved an adjoining property by bringing the bushland fire under control.
