Multiple crews worked hard to bring the blaze under control and stop it from spreading into nearby bushland.
Unfortunately, nothing could be salvaged.
It’s understood an elderly woman was taken to hospital with minor smoke inhalation, while another was treated at the scene for shock.
The cause of the fire remains unclear, however early indications suggest it is not suspicious.
It comes as the Gold Coast endured its coldest morning of the year so far, with unseasonably low single digit temperatures.
