The fire is believed to have started in the bedroom of the house however investigators are still determining the cause.

Superintendent Adam Dewberry from Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) said it was important for residents to always check their heaters before use.

"stay out of harm this winter by ensuring everything is kept at least one meter from the heater".

• Keep everything one metre away from your heater.
