Investigators are looking into a blaze that tore through a Kallangur home this morning.

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Services spokesperson says it took five crews half an hour to extinguish the fire.

“The first crews arrived at 10.15am and could see large amounts of smoke issuing from the house,” they said.

“Multiple firefighters used breathing apparatuses to go inside the house and bring it under control.

“They managed to put it out quite quickly before 10.45am.

“Just before 12pm the scene was made safe and left with the fire investigation until who will now look into the cause of the fire.”

Everyone was accounted for, and nobody required transport to hospital.

It is not yet known how and where the fire started.
