Multiple crews from Fire & Rescue NSW and the Rural Fire Service raced to douse the flames, but it was too late.

The building sustained extensive damage.

After extinguishing the inferno, crews searched the home, finding the body of a 70-year-old man.

A woman who also resides at the house was later located in Sydney.

Investigators say the fire does not appear to be suspicious.

Police will prepare a report for the Coroner outlining the full circumstances surrounding the man’s death.
