Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) crews have extinguished a house fire this morning at West Tamworth.
Firefighters found the small home vacant when they arrived in Matheson Street just after 4am.
The house was well alight.
Three crews, from the Tamworth and South Tamworth Fire Stations, wearing breathing apparatus, surrounded the house and established that no-one was home.
The fire was doused two hours later.
The cause of the blaze is being established.
Superintendent Adam Dewberry from Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) said this is a timely reminder that calling Triple Zero (000) for a fire emergency can be the difference between life and death, or a building or other property being saved or destroyed.
The Triple Zero (000) service is the quickest way to get the right resources from emergency services to help you. It should be used to contact Police, Fire or Ambulance services in life-threatening or time-critical situations.
