The home was well alight when fire crews arrived with the roof of the home collapsing a short time later.

It took crews around 90 minutes to bring the blaze under control.

No one was inside the home at the time.

Police say the fire is not being treated as suspicious with early indications suggesting an electrical fault may be to blame.
