Four units of the fire brigade were called to the scene where the fire had spread to two neighbouring homes, and is understood to have caused some damage to them.

However, firefighters were able to get the blaze under control by just before 8pm.

It was initially reported that a person may have still been inside the building while it was on fire, but the spokesperson confirmed that there were no injuries, and that all residents had been accounted for.
