“I went out the back and here’s the house on fire so I raced inside and got the old phone and called the old Triple Zero, but gee it went up pretty quick.”

Fire crews had the flames under control shortly before 6am, and had extinguished the blaze by 6.20am.

A QFES spokesperson tells us everyone inside the home was accounted for, however one person was taken to Gympie Hospital with minor burns to multiple parts of his body.
