Firefighters were called to a house fire this morning after a neighbour noticed smoke coming from the back of the home.

On arrival, crews reported that the downstairs of the property was filled with smoke and a small fire was burning in the kitchen.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire by 9.42am. Crews then cleared the property of smoke using a positive pressure ventilation fan.

The fire is believed to have been caused by a fault within an extractor fan.
